Microsoft backports data slurp to Windows 7 and 8 via patches

Re: 10 update

MS quote 3.8 GB for the update, but it took nearer 7 GB on my 8.1 laptop, making a big hole in my 12 GB per month quota. The first I knew that it had got around to doing the automatic update was when the internet was down for the entire household. We are limited to 2 GB per day and the update took the whole lot before breakfast leaving us without email, skype, internet etc for the rest of the day. Thankfully these automatic updates wont be a problem going forward as nobody will be using Windows 10 in this household any more.
