Driver Scan and Update

The core feature of Systweak’s Advanced Driver Updater is to scan your PC and report the outdated drivers. The software checks your PC’s drivers against millions of drivers in its database to know which ones are obsolete. Afterward, it generates a list of the outdated drivers, and you can update them within the app.

You can update the drivers individually or collectively with the click of a button. 

Advanced Driver Updater lets you set schedules to run an extensive scan on your PC’s drivers. It could be daily, weekly, or anytime your PC boots afresh. This way, you don’t have to launch the app every time to check up on your drivers.

Advanced Driver Updater is a suitable tool for ensuring your disk drivers are constantly updated. However, it lacks extra features outside the basic driver update, backup, and restore. It’s also only compatible with the Windows OS, which is a drawback.
