Windows 10 Auto-Updates and Data

Hi Guys,

We have a user who auto-upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 10.
They've been chawing through 3g data ever since, and we've been told it's as a result of the upgrade.

We've switched off the Windows 10 automatic updates, and checked for any 3rd party app (which might auto-connect), but unfortunately, the problem persists.

Any ideas?

Hi.

Press winkey and r together, then enter resmon.
Resmon can show, what process consumes what data. You can see network bandwidth consumption by process.

Go back to the home screen.
Swipe the home screen to the left.
Tap Data Sense.
Tap the Options button (round gear in the circle at the bottom)
Check the box for Restrict background data when I'm near my limit.

Check this out...

I would disable all the m$ store crapps. Many of them "phone home", and they are useless anyway and not needed. Also setup your Internet connection to be a metered connection, that way it only connects to the internet when you want to.

Is this Windows 10 Enterprise? You cannot switch Updates OFF on Pro or below.

Go to Settings, Updates, Advanced Options, Choose how updates are delivered and temporarily turn off the option to send out updates to your network. See if that helps. You can always re-enable the option.

I have found that the easiest repair for upgrade problems is to reinstall Windows 10 from the Media Creation Link and Keep Everything.
