Dell Repository Manager question

I've been Googling for a while now trying to find an answer but couldnt find anything. I'm using Dell's Repository Manager to download drivers for desktops and servers.

Why do I see multiple drivers listed?

I see 4 or 5 network drivers, chipset drivers, audio drivers. I see something like the below. Do I need to download all of these drivers, or just the most recent version? Why are they showing me multiple versions of what looks like the same driver??

Audio_Diver_WN_6.0.1.5907_A08.exe
Audio_Diver_WN_6.0.1.5910_A09.exe
Audio_Diver_WN_6.0.1.5919_A11.exe
Audio_Diver_WN_6.0.1.5985_A14.exe

Thanks

they could be showing multiple versions in case there is a problem with a version and you need to revert

go for the latest one (Audio_Diver_WN_6.0.1.5985_A14.exe) if that's the one that matches your hardware
you don't need to download and install from older to newer

you can also check what driver version handles the problem why  you're looking for a new driver, and use that one.
in general though, the latest is the the best - but sometimes it may still have problems
