    True, system restore doesn't backup the BCD store for an example

    You are so right. :)

    It's even better to have a good backup software doing incremental backups on every shutdown/restart to avoid the very long simple and full backups.

    Minimal time spent on each shutdown/restart after the first full backup.

    My C: drive is about 24GB and it takes 3 minutes to do a full backup. Since it uses VSS and I can still do things while backing up I take 4 full backups a day. IMO incrementals are added files that can become corrupted which will impact any restores you do.

    Incrementals are a good solution for big sizes system partition but they can't be used always with safety as you said.

    A full backup each week (monday 03:00 is a good time) or eack 10 days and use incrementals in between is a good compromise.

    24 GB partition is very small for C: partition. :)

    I use a 500gb system partition on SSD.

    Your system partition is small maybe TOO small, you can move or don't use pagefile or hibernation but W8.1 introduced some new hidden files needed who are not "movable".

    This will come handy as I'm testing some drivers in the latest build of Windows 10.
    Thanks again, Wagnard! :)

    Interesting utility... however:

    ...is there any way to just copy into the directory some of the required DLLs, so full .NET Framework install is not need?

    I simply avoiding .NET Framework at all, so it feels wrong to install .NET Framework just to be able to uninstall display driver... :( It is really necessary?

    The display drivers themselves require .NET.

    I suspect from your system spec's that you are provably using quite old drivers. I would recommend to avoid DDU n this case because it wasn't tested on this old hardware

    Hi Wagnard,

    I want to let you know about these modified AMD Drivers I've used before. I haven't used them for a few months since the betas (because they only release for WHQL's).

    Can you have a look at them, and see if you can find the registry keys they edit or maybe add that aren't there with the official drivers and betas? So that you can add them to DDU. I haven't ever had any issues with them, and sometimes they outperform the official AMD Drivers, and other times they look better. But I'm guessing they won't release a new driver until AMD release there next WHQL driver, so you have to test with the older ones to see what differences there are to the official drivers.

    EDIT: Link is not accepted here, I'll private message it to you.

    I don't know if they leave any residue files, I use DDU to uninstall them anyway and I've never had problems before, but you can have a look at them. Thanks in return.

    EDIT 2:

    Just google Tweak Force Drivers

    I don't know anything about their nVidia drivers, I only use their AMD drivers when they are released (WHQL).

    Why? Do they make Beta drivers? I've never seen them edit and post up beta drivers ever... So I usually install their WHQL driver, then update to the latest AMD ones when they go beta, and install tweak force again when an AMD WHQL driver is released.

    Edit: Just realised you're talking about their nVidia drivers. Why what's so special about them?

    I read this, from the release notes for those drivers:
    Code:
    Paletted Textures In Video Memory 
    Render Quality Flags 
    Target Flush Count 
    Texture Clamp Behavior 
    Texture LOD Bias 
    Use Cached PCI Mappings 
    Texture Memory Space 
    Downloaded Memory Space 
    Texture Precache 
    UMA Fast Frame Buffering 
    Main 3D rendering 
    Triple Buffering 
    Area Anisotropic Filtering
    With no extra explanation, nothing. It gives me this kind of impression:
