    Need some advice here, some time back I think Tony told me to install NetBalancer to check my Internet traffic, since I had assumed that someone had Hijacked my Router.
    This is not the case, I have changed my Router User and Password, but the upload is still the same.
    I have One Drive constantly, never stops if the modem is on uploading at 65 to 69 Kb/s. It dosen't matter if I am doing something on the comp or not, even when sitting idle for hours One Drive keeps uploading.
    I get a spike when Avast or some other program connects but they only last for a second or so.
    What is happening, is this normal.
    To make this even more strange to me is, I have Disabled file transfer in One Drive Settings.

    Can anyone put some light on this for me.

    If I had to guess, the little bitty files are index files that are created by One Drive when it scans for new files and compares the folders on One Drive to the folders on your pc. And or could simply be that your pc is pinging One Drive to make sure it's still available.

    And or, it probably is only sending packets of information and isn't actually sending files.

    Hi Bill, Have you looked in Task Manager to see what One Drive is doing? You can Disable it and see if that stops the action. Neil.

    Thanks Steve and Neil, I have turned off almost all of its functions in One Drive Settings, but is still the same, not showing much in Task Manager.

    Steve how many MB would that amount to per month, 60 odd KB/s if say the modem is left on 24/7

    Wow, if my calculations are correct and I mean IF, that would mean that One Drive at the rate of of 65KB/s amounts to 31GB per month.
    Tell me that I am wrong.

    One gigabyte equals 1,000,000,000 bytes divided by 1,000 = 1,000,000 KB.

    Feel free to correct my math.

    I was rather hoping you would go further in your calculations and tell me what you would work out it be 65KB/s 24/7 for one month :D:D
