Introduction
Health check helps you to keep your computer up to date by automatically finding and installing the latest drivers. You can also create a backup of all installed drivers at once.

This functionality is only available for Driver Fusion Premium users.

Scanning for issues
The issues that health check can detect are divided into three different sections, namely driver backup, missing drivers and outdated drivers. All sections are scanned by default but you can deselect a section if you do not want to include it in the scan.

Health check starts scanning for issues as soon as you click on scan 1. Each section automatically shows the detected issues once the scan is completed. All detected issues are selected by default, but you can choose to deselect any detected issue so that it will be skipped when fixing the found issues. Once scanned you can automatically fix the issues by clicking on fix.

Scan

Health check scanning for driver backups, missing drivers and outdated drivers.

Driver backup
With driver backup you can automatically create a backup of all installed drivers. Backups can be installed/restored with device control using driver overview.

The destination folder is automatically scanned for missing or outdated driver backups in order to avoid creating duplicate backups. It is recommended to change the destination folder to an external hard disk, or similar, to easily access your driver backups and to keep them safe from system failures. A different destination folder can be picked by 2 clicking on the change link but you can only add new destination folders in the driver backup settings. The last picked destination folder is automatically remembered for the next time you use health check.

You can also deselect a driver to prevent it from being backed up. This is only recommended for expert users.

Missing drivers
Health check can also detect all devices that do not have drivers installed. The latest driver can automatically be downloaded and installed if there are drivers available from Treexy's online driver database. For some devices there are no downloadable drivers, even though Treexy's online driver database is constantly updated. For these devices you can often use device identifier in device control to help you search for a driver online.

You can also deselect a driver to prevent it from being downloaded and installed. This is only recommended for expert users.

Outdated drivers
With outdated drivers you can scan all devices for outdated drivers. The version of the installed driver is displayed together with the version of the latest driver that can be downloaded from Treexy's online driver database. The outdated drivers are classified by their version and release date in order to represent the severity. The severity is shown for each driver by a bar on the left side along with a description. A very outdated installed driver is represented by a red bar, an outdated installed driver is represented by an orange bar, and an almost up-to-date installed driver is represented by a green bar.

You can view the release date, provider, and driver signature of the driver by 3 clicking on the more link when hovering over the driver. The provider of the driver is the name of the company that released the driver. The driver signature represents a measure of integrity and identity of the driver and has one of the following values: none, signed, authenticode verified by trusted publisher, authenticode or WHQL. By default, only drivers that have at least a signed driver signature are recommended as Windows will not install unsigned drivers. You can change the minimum driver signature level in the advanced section of the settings.

Outdated

The outdated drivers found by deselected to prevent it from being downloaded and installed.

You can also deselect a driver, to prevent it from being downloaded and installed, or 4 exclude the device or the driver entirely from the scan results. This is only recommended for expert users. You can exclude devices and drivers from the results by clicking on the more link when hovering over an outdated driver. 

  • Click on exclude device to prevent any driver suggestions being show for the device, this includes the current available driver as well as any future updates.
  • Click on exclude available driver to just exclude this suggested driver from the scan results. This only applies to the current available driver, when a newer driver update is released it will be included in the scan results again.

You can manage the excluded devices and excluded available drivers in the health check settings section.
