Hello @Artyaslam

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.

In order to check this behavior further, could you please provide or confirm the following details?

1- Just to make sure we understand correctly, based on the title of the post you said "SSD space drastically reduces", but then you mentioned, "SSD had 34GB free space and when installed that update now the SSD had 45GB free space". Could you please confirm if the actual issue is SSD free space reduces (consuming space) or increases (freeing up space) after installing driver

2- Besides installing the graphics driver, were there any other changes like Windows, game, software, or other component-driver updates?

3- Where is the game installed? on the 120GB SSD or on the 1TB hard disk (HDD)?

4- How often does the "lagging" behavior occur in the game? Does it happen at any specific moment? From the begging or after playing for a long period of time? Does it happen on the built-in display, using an external display, or both?

Could you please provide a short video showing the behavior?

5- Please provide detailed step-by-step instructions for replication purposes regarding the lagging issue with the game.

Also, please share details or screenshots of the settings that you have configured for the game and the specific power management settings that you change.

6- Run the Intel® System Support Utility (Intel® SSU) to gather more details about the system.

  • Download the Intel® SSU and save the application on your computer
  • Open the application, check the "Everything" checkbox, and click "Scan" to see the system and device information. The Intel® SSU defaults to the "Summary View" on the output screen following the scan. Click the menu where it says "Summary" to change to "Detailed View".
  • To save your scan, click Next and click Save.
  • Once you have saved the file (.txt file), please attach it to your reply.
  • To upload and attach a file, use the "Drag and drop here or browse files to attach" option below the response textbox.

Sorry I didn't mean reduces (consuming space) I mean increases (freeing up space) after installing driver which is recommended for my laptop in HP website and my game installed in HDD but now I fixed the issue that I had by re-installing windows now the game is working properly and I have almost 60GB freed in my SSD

but I still can't figure it out why this happened and I perceive something that is whenever I update an important driver I should check carefully

Thankyou for your reply
