x1 v8 internet data usage

Postby wingfield » Sat May 02, 2020 5:22 pm

hello,

windows 10 now allows tracking of data usage over internet. in looking at this information on an app basis, I see that both "x1contentextraction.exe" and "x1servicehost.exe" are at the top of the list. I reset the usage stats this morning to see if it was an anomoly; but less than a day later; same result. the "x1contentextraction.exe" has already used 150gb and the "x1servicehost.exe" has used 33gig. why do either of these services use my internet connection at all???? this makes no sense to me. they are simply indexing data on my drives.

thank you.

Hello,

that is very strange. Are you indexing files from network shares? Or folders containing files from a cloud storage like OneDrive, Box, DropBox, etc., where those files may be synced from the cloud?

You can also try to use a tool like Fiddler to check what addresses are being accessed and how much data is being transferred.

hello,

yes, my NAS is being indexed. does that mean X1 is taking up network bandwidth inside my house in order to index the NAS??? if yes, it's a very large amount and could be the reason I've been having some internet issues even though I have 1gig down speeds.
so can I install X1 directly on the NAS to avoid this network traffic??

thank you
