Default Windows 10 Updates

Hi.
Although I am on a metered connection I normally have enough data to install updates. however is there a way to find out the size of these updates before downloading to ensure sufficient band width is available.
Regards.
Mike

When on a metered connection if it's an "optional" update it should tell you the size.

I think windows 10

See post 41.

By the way, if you are on a metered connection you have to let Windows know about this. Otherwise it'll act as if it was an unrestricted connection.

I think I got it. You are on a metered connection and thus watching your data usage.

You are right, you should have the option of seeing the size of the data before attempting to download.

Oh hello fellow Australian. May I ask if you are connected to the NBN and who is your ISP? Most of the bigger ISP's have big data allowances or unlimited unless you are using mobile broadband or satellite.
