    How View Network Data Usage Details in Windows 10


    information   Information
    This tutorial will show you how to view the Wi-Fi and Ethernet network data usage details of apps from the last 30 days on your Windows 10 PC.
    Note   Note
    Microsoft is making some changes to the Data Usage settings page under Settings > Network & Internet — you’ll notice some differences in Windows 10 build 17035. Not everything is working so stay tuned for an announcement in a later flight when everything is up and running.


    Here's How:

    1. Open Settings, and click/tap on the Network & Internet icon.

    2. Click/tap on Data usage on the left side. You will now see a general overview of the Wi-Fi and Ethernet network data usage from the last 30 days on your PC. (see screenshots below)

    4. Select Wi-Fi or Ethernet in the drop menu you want to see how must network data has been used by each app from the last 30 days. (see screenshots below)

    After some digging i've found that data related to data consumption are stored in
    C:\Windows\System32\sru\Srudb.dat

    I have resetted the data in the following way

    - rename sru folder (try few times because Windows is registering data in it...)
    - once renamed cut/paste srudb.dat in a backup folder (if you want to restore it in future..)
    - open notepad and save empty document with name srudb.dat in the folder
    - restore folder name to C:\Windows\System32\sru\

    I' have'nt found no problem doing it but if you do it do it at your own risk.

    Hope to have been helpfull

    Hello Fla78, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Thank you for the pointer. After playing with it for a bit. I found it easier to boot into Safe Mode (without networking) to be able to easily delete the contents of the sru folder. Afterwards, boot back into normal mode, and data usage is reset.

    I'll write up a new tutorial for this today sometime, and will post back with a link to it when ready.

    So I had the same issue with my Surface3 that I just bought this weekend. My AT&T cellular connection downloaded my entire dropbox on my first charge which was needless to say a shock.
    Build 10565 (and probably earlier - Im in the fast ring) gives you the ability to limit and reset your data usage. It's under settings>network>cellular or >data usage. For instance, I set a maximum of 250 MB for the next five days. I haven't found a way to disable so either for any particular applications like a iPhone can but I'm sure something can be developed at some point.

    Definately seems like a vast improvement from the vanilla windows 10 installed when I first bought it (?build 10240 or something)

Windows 10 resource usage
One of the good things is the small footprint of Windows 10. In my installation it uses only 8.5GB on the C partition and less than 500MB of RAM. I am sure that willl grow somewhat with the RTM edition, but it is a good start. 72517252
