Windows 10 introduced a new feature, called Windows Update Delivery Optimization (WUDO), initially designed to help users get faster software updates.
Windows Update Delivery Optimization works like a torrent node: your computer is used as part of a peer-to-peer network to deliver software updates faster to others.
Each computer distributes a part of the files across multiple systems and helps everyone to download updates more faster.
However, this peer-to-peer method uses your bandwidth, and the feature is enabled by default in Windows 10.
Here the steps to disable this feature:
- Open Settings in the Start menu
- Search for Update & Security
- In the Windows Update section, open Advanced Options
- In the Choose How Updates are Installed section, open Choose how updates are delivered
- Now disable the toggle Updated from More than One Place
- Bash on Windows 10?
