Windows 10 update "Microsoft - WPD - 2/22/2016 12:00:00 AM - 5.2.5326.4762."

I received a notice to install this update. 

Microsoft - WPD - 2/22/2016 12:00:00 AM - 5.2.5326.4762.

The date is from over a year ago. 

Is this for real, or am I about to break the Internet by installing it?

I did a bit of reading and it is a Windows Portable Device driver that originally came out for Vista, Win 7 and Win 8, but seems to be required for lots of Windows 10 PCs depending on what removeable media/device you connect.

I did the update after seeing tons of posts from people who got the same notification, one who installed it and had no complaints.

I installed the update, it took less than 1 second and does not require a reboot. My PC still works as it should (so far) so I would deem this a harmless update, but just outright weird.
