Excessive OneDrive traffic in WIndows 10 laptop ?

Last Modified: 2016-03-14

Can anyone here please explain to me as to why my builtin OneDrive account that is just 15 GB consumes almost 1 TB of data in the past week alone ?

Here's the traffic report that was shown by my network team to show that I'm consuming 65% of the web traffic quota:
yqflpa.bay.livefilestore.com 489.96 GB  
yqflpa.by3301.livefilestore.com 347.39 GB  
yqflpa.by3302.livefilestore.com 296.04 GB  
lym3uw.bay.livefilestore.com  52.4 GB 

Open in new window

Is there any way to turn it off ? Because at the moment the One Drive document are all outdated with lots of RedX icon on it.
