    Hi,

    I have a pretty poor internet connexion at home (<1Mbps) and it takes me days to download games or apps from Microsoft Store.

    My friend has a Windows PC too, can we use the Delivery Optimization feature to transfer game/app files from a PC to another if we're on the same network?

    When he comes home we're both connected by Ethernet on my router so I think it will be way faster...

    TL;DR : How to use delivery optimization to transfer games files from a PC to another on the same network

    Thanks !



    Not sure if it's relevant, but here's my Windows version

    How does Windows Delivery Optimization detect the bandwidth available?

    Hi Jason,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    In the heart of the Windows kernel there is a networking stack. It contains a suite of algorithms that would determine the available bandwidth.



    You can use the PowerShell cmdlets to monitor the delivery optimization.
    Get-DeliveryOptimizationStatusreturns a real-time snapshot of all current Delivery Optimization jobs. For more information, I would suggest you
    to refer to the article: Set up Delivery Optimization for Windows 10 updates



    Additional info:



    If you have further queries, I would suggest you to post your query in the
    TechNet Forums, where we have support professionals

    Windows Update and Delivery Optimization burning through data on metered connection

    We suggest that to manage your connection consume for Windows Update and Delivery Optimization is to configure Delivery Optimization through Group Policy and Windows Update by deferring the Windows Update.

    For more information on how to use Group Policy to configure Windows Update Delivery Optimization in Windows 10, check this
    link.

    Deferring Windows upgrades prevent your device from getting the latest Windows features downloaded or installed for several months. It doesn't affect any security updates. To do this, follow these steps:

    • Type Settings in Cortana Search and press
      Enter
      .
    • Click Update & Security and click Advance Options under
      Update settings.
    • Check the tick box for Defer feature updates.

    Let us know how it goes to assist you further.
