Recently I have been looking closely at upload and download activity using tbb meter and had noticed some very large uploads and downloads that could not be initially identified. They consisted of a 4MB upload followed by a 100MB (yes, one hundred Mega Bytes) of download and the sequence was repeated 4 or 5 times. Had I allowed it to continue I would be looking at 50GB per month across three PCs.
After a couple of false leads the source was identified as Isposure. It was tbbmeter and the associated tools that finally led me (with MrS's assistance) to the root of the problem.
I have looked back at the tbbmeter logs and can see that it has been happening for two weeks which has wasted around 15 to 20 GB of download.
Does anyone else have large downloads that they cannot identify or wonder why their usage is so high?
