Just a good example of the "Smart Technologies"...

Re: Just a good example of the "Smart Technologies"...

With permission, I'd like to start a new thread about GlassWire if I may.  Now this isn't really about Hughes, because I have two ISPs, and the event that I am going to describe briefly here was when I was connected with my uncapped and no limit DSL (but Hughes upload/download speed is higher).

I purchased GlassWire Pro around 4 months ago (I think Amanda suggested Glasswire Free), and I was recently looking back at the history.  I was astonished to find an upload of 750GB (yes gigabyte, and about 10 months of Hughes quota) that as far as I was concerned was unauthorized, unknown, and went to an unknown destination.  Basically, it was my network drive that my personal data drive is backed up on regularly, using Acronis 2016.  Since then, there have been additional uploads after an incremental backup is performed.

I have tried real hard to sort this out including posting at Microsoft, but I have run out of gas and ideas.  One I want to stop it, and two I would like to know where it came from.

Glasswire indicates that the App is "System", the Host is my Seagate 41257D network attached drive, and the Traffic Type is Microsoft-DS Active Directory.

Microsoft told me to disable the Microsoft-DS Active Directory service, but I didn't find any such service to disable.  This is Windows 10.

And this is relevant to Hughes because of the frequent complaints about data leaks.

You can start a new thread about Glasswire.  Just choose Off Topic in the related categories below. 

It sounds like something may be trying to backup to a cloud.

An update...

Also, again, in the same time period my other two computers have probably used around 600-700MBs combined, so add that onto what Glasswire says for this desktop.

Holy Cow!

3..2 vs. 8.1 and I thought I was a miser.

Well, don't forget the 1.5 bonus bytes, too.  But yeah, even 4.7 is miserly.  The funny thing is I don't even try to conserve, it just works out that way.
