The free version has many disadvantages. It would not be wrong to say that Its free version is of no use.
Although in the free version, It does not scam you as other such softwares do.
As they scare you with threats of blue screens and system problems and ask you for money to fix all problems after the scan.
But You can’t download, update and install more than two drivers per day in the free version. The same case is with backup and restore. More info at here
