Hey guys, I need a little help. I’ve finished with the hardware install with the 980m but now that I’m trying to mod the nvidia drivers, the files delete themselves from the c drive after the system checks for compatibility. Any suggestions on how to stop this?

Hello, yes you just need to leave the failed installer open and go to your C: drive and find the NVIDIA folder. Copy and paste the folder in the C: drive and it will name itself NVIDIA - Copy. Now when you close the installer you will be left with the copied folder that you can mod.
Let me know if you need any extra help as I have modded drivers many times.
