    BITS service manual or automatic?


    Hey all
    I'm just wondering whether it matters if the BITS services is in manual or automatic (delayed start) since it has a habit of switch from the former to the latter. I'm not interested in disabling it as I still want my updates checked automatically (controversial I know).

    Hello shadowblade, :)

    This below is the default setting for the BITS service, so it's fine to leave it on "Automatic".

    thanks I noticed today it has switched to manual even though i set it automatic (delayed start). I contacted Microsoft via the the contact support app and they said it didn't matter as it was normal behaviour of the system.

    so if the system automatically sets BITS back to manual I should not have any problems at all?

    You shouldn't as long as the service is not disabled.
