docj Posted August 18, 2015 Report Share Posted August 18, 2015 There has been a lot of concern expressed here about Windows 10 automatic updates, but I hadn't realized that the update process included peer-to-peer sharing of downloaded updates, not just to other computers on your network, but also to computers anywhere on the internet! In other words, to reduce the load on its servers when pushing out updates, Microsoft has designed Windows 10 to use YOUR internet connect to redistribute updates to others! No concern on its part that some users would have limited data plans, etc. Typical Microsoft! Fortunately, this process can be limited or stopped entirely. This article: http://www.howtogeek.com/224981/how-to-stop-windows-10-from-uploading-updates-to-other-pcs-over-the-internet/ explains how to limit peer-to-peer redistribution to computers on your network or turn it off entirely.
