The Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC is always simple yet elegant in providing gorgeous and stunning smartphones, offering services to unlock bootloader right on their website and loading sensible Sense UI on their devices. However, HTC chose a different path to provide USB drivers for their devices which is arguably better in many ways. Instead of providing driver packages to the Android smartphones, HTC distributes a united tool called the HTC Sync Manager which automatically installs required drivers while installation.
HTC Sync Manager (Upgraded from HTC Sync for Sense 3.6 or below) is a free application for your PC that makes it easy to sync all your media between your HTC device and the PC. Additionally, you can also sync contacts, calendar events, bookmarks, and documents as well. As wonderful as the tool is, there are some set backs for Android tinkerers which may force you to uninstall HTC sync on your PC. Many users reported issues while trying to S-Off, Root, flashing system images, etc… and the culprit was proved to be HTC Sync. So, I would suggest you to uninstall HTC sync whenever you want to get your hands dirty with rooting and stuff. The drivers stay intact even if you uninstall the Sync manager as they will appear separately in the Remove programs screen on your PC, so score one for us.
