  1. System Data Usage EXTREMELY high


    I'm not sure why my system is taking 171.62gb of data in the last 30 days. I have Windows 10 Pro, my PC is connected via Ethernet and I'm pretty sure I have turned off all background apps. I have a data plan with my ISP, and my system is eating it up. Any suggestions?

  2. Windows 10 high system data usage

    We appreciate the additional information. Windows update is one of the possible cause why the system data usage is high. If you prefer to disable automatic updates to avoid high data usage, follow the steps below:

    • Type gpedit.msc in the search bar, then press Enter
      to open Local Group Policy Editor.
    • Browse the following path:
      • Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Update
    • Locate Configure Automatic Updates, then double-click it.
    • Check the Enabled option to enable the policy.
    • Under Options, change it to option 2 (Notify for download and notify for install).
    • Click Apply, then OK.

    Let us know if you need anything else. We're here to help.
