Nokia Windows driver Package?

Nokia Windows driver Package?

I've just spent the last hour clearing out some rarely used software when I noticed the "Windows driver package - Nokia pccsmcfd legacy driver" in my list of programmes.

 

The size of this application is 3.52gb

 

That seems an awfully large file for some drivers.

 

Does anyone know if this is correct?

I'm in the same situation, mine is 4.72gb. What could it possibly be?

Do not uninstall the driver, Nokia Suite requires that driver, if phone is in wrong USB mode and Nokia Suite uses that to change phone to correct USB mode.

 

Driver size is actually about 30 KB. For some reason, Windows seem to show the driver size wrongly. Can you attach here a screenshot, from where in Windows you can see this big size for the driver?

 

What Windows versions are you using?

Re: Nokia Windows driver Package?

We have now seen few PCs where WIndows -> Control Panel -> Add and Remove Programs informs incorrectly the driver size. Actually driver size is less than 30 KB. 

 

- Don't worry about incorrect information provided by "Add and Remove Programs" in Windows

- Don't uninstall this driver, because it doesn't really take more than 30 KB disk space

Re: Nokia Windows driver Package?

The Nokia Legacy driver in my PC reads 61,1GB.

Is this possible? Please advise.

Re: Nokia Windows driver Package?

Same problem, add and remove tells me its 60.314.00MB....60GB seems a tad big. Why does Windows get such a crazy file size for this package?

If the add and remove software reports 5.6GB is this taking away from my reported disk space

My hard drive is full an extra 5.5 GB would be very handy

I have a 128GB drive with 127.8 GB used i hope that nokia file isnt robbing me of avialable space

I have uninstalled it  but it still reports as bieng installed using 5.6 GB

If so then problem is not solved

How do you go about getting it to report the correct size?
