  2. Excessive upload by Windows 10

    Hello,

    My Win10 machine is using about 50 GB (upload) or more per day - all while sitting idle.

    All data connections are marked metered, all live tiles are turned off, there are only a small handful of applications - none requiring internet, verified none are running in the background, always have extensive monitoring by Eset, updates are ONLY marked
    to be shared on the LAN, run malware checks daily, and as far as i can see it is just the Windows system using the bandwidth.

    But I can't seem to stop Windows from uploading other than turn it off.

    So far I've incurred three excessive data use charges by my ISP at the fault of Microsoft.

    What can be done about this?

    Excessive phantom data usage

    However, as the article states, if you want to prevent excess data charges it turn off cellular data.
