Hi:

 

The SWSetup folder contains all of the driver and software installation files that originally came with your notebook.

 

I delete it all the time after I copy it to a portable hard drive.

 

You do not need that folder for your PC to work.

Hi

Thank you for your reply.

 

so I can delete the SWsetup folder in c drive?

then where is the original hp driver file?  even it's not in control panel also. 

 

First time I'm using hp laptop. actually manual driver software installation part is very terible, because after installation is finish we can't see any message (installtion is complete or installation is successful)

and also auto restart option isn't available after the installation. 

But Dell driver software installation is very easy.

 

Note: Please inform to hp software development team.

(some drivers aren't available for hp 15s-du1014tu model, because when we download and install the all drivers from hp support website, after that windows updates install some intel drivers again).

I'm frankly tell you, I'm not happy with hp drivers.
