Dear thanks for response,
I would like to share the scenario in detail.

in my office I have received a mail from my Administrator that I have downloaded 16 G.B Data in past 24 Hrs & I don't even downloaded a single File. Then how is it possible that my system has generated so much traffic. He shared me screen shot showing that my PC has generated 16 GB Data usage. How is ot possible. Please Help.

Re: traffic

- Was your computer turned on or turned off?
- What did you do with the computer during that time. For example, using it to view Netflix in UHD quality generates a lot of data.
- "Your administrator" makes me think it's a business PC, and he belongs to the IT staff. Am I right?
- Does you PC have a static or dynamic IP address? Or is it the IP address of your router? If a wireless router, how many neighbours can use it?
- Can you find 16 GB of data on your hard disk created these last 24 hours?
- Data usage can be upload or download. Are your sure it's download?

I supplied a reason.

But your reply didn't tell me you turned it off.
So yes, it is possible to see that much traffic on a clean install of W10 or a PC that runs W10

Why not turn that off?
