InformationWindows 10 includes a feature to let you view the network data usage of the PC from the last 30 days. The data usage is itemized per type of network (ex: Wi-Fi or Ethernet), and by app usage.
This tutorial will show you how to reset network data usage back to zero as needed in Windows 10.
You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to reset network data usage.
EXAMPLE: Network data usage before and after reset
1. Temporarily disable your active network adapter(s), or start Windows into safe mode without networking. (see screenshot below)
2. Open File Explorer, browse to the C:\Windows\System32\sru folder, and open it. (see screenshot below step 3)
3. Delete all contents inside the sru folder. Be sure to NOT delete the sru folder. (see screenshot below)
4. Enable you active network adapter(s) again, or start Windows back into normal mode.
