Windows 7: Deleting old Installs once Updated

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Deleting old Installs once Updated

Hey everyone,

Just a quick question, when I update a driver or go through the Windows Update, what happens to the old Driver? Can I delete/uninstall the old Drivers once I update to the current drivers?

Essentially, am I losing Hard Drive space after each update? Since as I update, I install which overlaps the older Drivers, so the size just keeps getting bigger and bigger after each update?

Thanks in advance!

I use this, it gets a lot of the common driver. Should be used prior to installation of new driver.
