Just to add a little .....
You can get a more detailed report for a given time period by adjusting the "sliders" at the bottom of the GlassWire display:
There are a couple of points that you need to keep in mind:
#1: GlassWire will only track and display usage for the single computer that it is installed on.
If you have multiple computers you will have to do a separate install on each machine and add the totals.
#2: Keep in mind that having a router connected makes things more difficult as it allows multiple devices to share a connection and the wireless portion is the worst.
As an example I brought my Samsung Galaxy tab 4 home from work for a few days. Despite it being set up to NOT update some installed apps continued to update. The data used was not recorded by GlassWire because it can't be installed on that device. The tablet consumed about 800 MB of data in the few days it was home.
I would encourage you to remove any router from the network during the troubleshooting phase. Connect a single computer directly to the modem.
Test each computer separately over a few days and see what programs or processes are using data.
Remember also that users running Win10 have very little to no control over what and when Win10 updates or the info it "shares".
Also keep in mind that Microsoft is "preloading" Win10 to users of Win7, 8 and 8.1 as a background process.
If you have any questions regarding the use of GlassWire or general data loss issues just post them to this topic and I'll do my best to assist.
You don't "paste" them, you upload them like this:
After taking the screenshot you save the snip as a ... file or object if you prefer to a spot on you computer that is easily accessible such as your desktop. The usual "file type" for a screenshot is a PNG type of file.
When saving that file to your desktop you should give it name that is somewhat descriptive .......
After having save the object you need to upload to the community by first clicking the "camera" icon:
Then specify the file you wish to upload:
Select the file:

Lets return to making our posts at the current "end" of the topic so as not to have an expanding conversation going on in the middle of a topic.
You have your display set for a "month" and the traffic type set at "all" which make for some pretty big numbers.
Overall you have used a total of 8.7 GB
It is divided in to:
Download: 7.4 GB
Upload: 1.3 GB
One thing that strikes me it the ratio of upload to download. Usually upload is around (yes I know that habits vary) 6-10 % and yours is nearly double that.
Something is doing a lot of "talking" and we need to find out who that is.
Your two biggest "users" are:
Firefox @ 4.9 GB total with the most of it being "download"
And a "Microsoft" something or other (kind of hard to tell as it is truncated because of the "ALL" traffic setting. It used 2.5 GB and appears to be nearly all download.
I suspect at this point it is a Windows related update.
As a point of comparison here is mine for the same period: (same settings)
Notice that my upload/download ratio is about 9%

Lets look at the activity of the "Big Users" in a week by week period.
