Snappy Driver Installer brief overview

This is a free program that scans the system to install missing or to update out-of-date drivers. There are two versions: SDI Full and SDI Lite. SDI Full is an offline version, to use without Internet connection, it includes the entire driver databases (14.6 GB).

Unlike SDI Full, SDI Lite only consists of program files (5 MB) and requires Internet access to download the necessary drivers. A big advantage of SDI is that it shows the most appropriate file system driver, not just the latest one. You can install the newest of course, though it might not always be a more effective one.

SDI also shows if older drivers (than installed) but more appropriate for PC are available. There is only a portable version, so you do not need to install anything. SDI has several themes and over 40 languages, is very easy to use. Overall, Snappy is a decent portable driver updater doing the job well and not overwhelming with extra  options.

    For fans of the classic interface.

    I was looking for a program that could update the drivers of my computer. Among the list of most popular Driver Updaters programs, there was Snappy Driver included. Its name made laugh me, so I decided to try the program. The site is quite simple,, I do not pay attention to it. There were several options for downloading: manual installation, automatic installation and downloading with full database (17 GB). I decided to use the first option because I like to control what is installed, to know all changes in the system. The interface of the program says the least "strange". There is a list of themes and I chose “Happy New Year”, but I did not notice any connection with New Year. I also did not like buttons, text, and others because it has a classic look like in Windows XP.

    It does an excellent work..
    I like how it works and its excellent job, in contradistinction to Driver Booster and its included bloatware. It has a great functionality (My rating of it is 5 of 5). I think it is not easy for novice users because of missing the installer of SDI. There is portable version only. Also, in my opinion, its interface is not the best
    • Pros
      • A great functionality
      • Cool job.
    • Cons
      • Only portable
      • The interface.

    It damaged my computer!
    This app may harm your computer! I always used Driver Booster and there all were perfect. Somehow (not long ago) I decided to reinstall my OS. I thought it`ll run better after. This procedure has taken two days! It happened because of Snappy Driver Installer. I wanted to try a new program to find drivers. And it was SDI. I got an error (blue screen) after using it and rebooting the computer. My PC even could not boot. I tried different ways to fix it but I could not... Honestly, I used simultaneously SDI and Registry cleaner... Ergo, I suspect that the registry cleaner made this mistake. So, I went to bed and decided to postpone the new OS reinstallation the next day. The next day I created a bootable USB-drive with Windows 10 and installed it. Then I had to wait until all updates applied. Then I had to install all the needed programs. Then I installed SDI. Then I used it. Then I got the blue screen again! So, it was not the registry cleaner but - SD Installer... I had to spend 5 hours again to get a workable computer... Terrible! I do not know why it happened because I read only positive responses about such program type, in particularly Snappy!

    It has a nice interface and looks hopeful but broke my touchpad.
    It has a nice interface and looks hopeful. But he gave a bad result use on my laptop. It broke my touchpad. My system: Dell Inspiron 7548, Windows 10. I used Snappy Driver Installer to update the drivers although the laptop run well. There was a problem with touchpad only it stopped working and absolutely disappeared from the device manager. So I could not roll back the drivers. But I have created the restore point before drivers upgrading and also my laptop has a touch screen. These two things let me restore the Windows.
    • Pros
      • a nice interface
    • Cons
      • The touchpad disappeared after using it.

    Snappy driver installer never works for me.
    There are two things I do not like. Firstly, I very do not like I have to download full pack (16 Gb) for the offline version, why there is no way to choose. When I use online version it says me the driver is not found in the driverpacks". Secondly, SD often says me I have to connect to the Internet for downloading the drivers. It says me about this when the computer is connected!!
    • Pros
      • Cannot rate.
    • Cons
      • Only full download DriverPack
      • Online version cannot find driver with
      • Tells the PC isn`t connected to the internet.
