Driver Store-File Repository using huge disk space. How can I reduce it?

Q. I use one printer, one mouse, one extra screen and one camera, and my iPhone only on my laptop and there is 17Gb of space used for drivers? I see there have been other questions about this here. But no answers.


The driver store is a trusted location of the inbox and third-party driver packages. Before a driver can be installed, it must first be injected into the driver store which is located under C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository. If you’re having issues with the File Repository taking up a large space, you can try running the disk cleanup tool to free up some space on your PC as an initial workaround. Refer to this link to know how to run the disk cleanup tool.
