In this guide, as the title suggests we will be taking a look at how to manually delete old AMD drivers that have been stored on your Windows PC or laptop. These drivers may have been hogging up valuable storage space. So depending on how long you have had Windows installed and been using either an AMD CPU, Graphics Card, or other AMD hardware, will depend on how many old drivers are on your computer taking up valuable space.
It is unnecessary to have lots of old AMD drivers on your hard drive taking up valuable space and it would be nice to see in the future the drivers get removed automatically when we do update them! But for now, you can either do it manually as we show below, or you can use the AMD Cleanup Utility tool if you prefer.
Is it safe to delete AMD Folder?
Yes, it is safe to delete the files within the AMD folder. But you can always keep a copy of the last few driver folders if you want. However, you will be able to redownload old AMD drivers for Windows so if you are limited on disk space then remove them all. It’s just handy to have a backup if you did happen to lose internet and need to reinstall a driver.
