Windows 10 commandeers users' upload bandwidth

Gregg Keizer | Aug. 4, 2015
Peer-to-peer service designed to deliver updates and apps to others switched on by default.

DoSvc is the name given to the WUDO mechanism built into Windows 10.

Users can disable WUDO entirely or limit its reach by changing settings in Windows 10.

From "Settings," users can click the "Update & security" icon, then the "Advanced options" link under "Windows Update." In the ensuing window, click on "Choose how updates are delivered" to turn off WUDO by moving the slider to Off. To leave it on, but restrict sending locally cached updates and apps only to devices on the same local network, select "PCs on my local network" near the bottom.
