    Thanks, WOT, I'll give it a try. Amazingly, the download has stopped for now, after 5 hours. Still, running that speed every day for a week or more, that's a heck of a lot of data for a Windows update (games average 50-60G, so it's a lot of games).

    Still would like some kind of editor to look at the Update logs though.
    You open them in event Viewer - Right Click event Viewer, Saved Logs then browse to the etl file.

    You can also take a peek at the specific executable being used to access your disk (during the time it is happening) by going to:

    task manager> performance tab> open resource monitor (bottom)> disk tab and look at "disk activity."

    Click image for larger version.

    Sort the disk activity by highest read and write activity at the top of each column.

    This should help you nail the culprit down a bit further.

    Good luck,

    clam1952: Tried event viewer and only got a file full of:

    Unknown( 55): GUID=d4f32785-ef13-3307-f994-d5b9a949eb98 (No Format Information found)

    which makes no sense. It's like the transmit starts and fails continually. Something's not right here.

    WOT, I'll check the disk activity the next time the transmit happens.

    Thanks.

    Your GUID is mentioned, in this WSUS server thread, in the same context as you have described above:

    Are you distributing updates (or attempting to do so)?

    Not intentionally. In Choose how updates are delivered, I have 'When this is turned on, your PC may also send parts of previously downloaded Windows Updates and Apps to PCs on your local network...' turned off, so my PC shouldn't be sending anything out. Could this be a bot?

    Check the disk activity the next time it flares up and post the results.

    In the meantime, hopefully someone with fresh ideas will chime in to assist.

    No, I believe it just uses the bandwidth to make the download faster..

    Well, if following the trend, it should start up Saturday again. Will post the disk activity as soon as I see it running. In the meantime, thanks, everybody, for you continuing support.

    Back tomorrow.

    Have you checked you update history for failed updates? It may try to re-download the updates over and over, which could be what you're seeing.

    Nothing Saturday but running again this morning. Checked disk activity and believe that WSAPPX might be the culprit. Disabled updates for and turned off the Windows Store using GPEDIT. Let's see if this stops the transmit.

    Back later.
