    It does take a long time and a lot of resources. You can disable such reporting if you wish, but the idea is of course to prompt MS to fix sthg.

    It will be uploading logs and dmp files, crash reports, and the like.

    You can manually check to see if any of your reported problems have been fixed, but if so they should appear automatically.
    (e.g. Settings, search for 'problem')

    You might want to download Wireshark which can help analyse your traffic.
