    This could be read as that updates will be shared IF they are being downloaded simultaneously on multiple PCs.
    I think you are correct . It stacks up with my own observations, but as I very seldom have more than one PC on my LAN these days wanting to do updates, it is no longer an issue for me.

    UPDATE:

    Starting today, Windows Insiders that have Delivery Optimization enabled will be able to download new Insider Preview builds, OS updates, and app updates from other PCs on their local network as well as from other PCs on the Internet. We introduced Delivery Optimization with the Windows 10 November Update giving users the ability to get updates from PCs on a local network and are now enabling the ability to get updates from PCs on the Internet. When enabled, your PC may also send parts of apps or updates that you have downloaded using Delivery Optimization to other PCs.

    Shawn, I was just thinking about this, since it is what they are pushing in 14915, I have been using it a few months now, and haven't really noticed a difference on my PC, maybe it helps others though.
    This could be that I don't update every thing at once.

    But I'm side tracking here,
    what I really wanted to post is, if someone really wants or needs to use this option, they need to make sure they DON'T delete the files with Disk Cleanup or any other disk cleaner the has the option.

    Hey Cliff,

    The Delivery Optimization Files option in Disk Cleanup should be safe to delete since it says that it deletes previously downloaded files. I would think that the service would just download the files again if needed after being deleted.

    What was your experience?

    I have noticed no difference with it on or off. My internet is 25 & 5, and as I usually force an update when I know one is coming, so that may have something to do with it. But for people with slow or metered connections, I personally think they should use this option.

    If I was still using USB Mobile Broadband, like I did up till a short while ago, then, no question, DO would be a "Must" for me.

    Agreed. It'll help reduce Internet bandwidth usage.

    Shawn,

    I presume the processes in this tutorial work regardless of which version of WIN 10 you have ( Pro, Home, etc)?

    Hello Shawn I have a friend who has very limited download capacity because of the rotten broadband coverage out here and is limited to 30GB per month but it sounds like she has an option to download in off peak times and I have read ths and wonder if there is such a "hack" for wnat of a better term.

    It is especially important now because of the size of soem of the updates. I would also lie to know myelf because all my 10 setups are now running really good (a few hiccups) and have the Creator stuff now - on of those largere download I was thinking of.

    John, I would suggest you enable both defer & the 'metered network' options for those connections, and use something like WSUS Offline instead of WU to download the updates. You can setup an trigger to download during off-peak times, then install the updates at your convenience from the local cache in WSUS Offline.
