Intel(R) Network Connections Drivers reporting the driver size as Gigabytes in add/Remove programs

when looking at the Add/Remove Programs, as well as Settings/System/Storage/Storage Usage, "the Intel(R) Network Connections Drivers" is reporting (in my case 6 gigabytes) usage.

this is apparently because the InstallDirectory setting in the installer is %systemroot%\system32, and not its own directory, so it gets charged for the whole system32 subtree. when I was looking for stuff to delete from my windows 10 computer, this looked like something was wrong and I should delete it. fortunately, I knew it was a misrepresentation. I strongly encourage you to fix that, because its not very helpful to regular users, and could lead to complaints and confusion.

Hi ImNotSerious,

Thank you for the post. What is the driver version and where did you download the driver?

This seems to be an onboard NIC, can you provide also the system used? Thanks.

thanks,

wb
