How to disable P2P Delivery Optimization updates in Windows 10

Windows 10’s P2P sharing eating into your upload bandwidth and slowing down your network connection. Its new peer-to-peer (P2P,  like Torrent) delivery update mechanism. Using the P2P option Delivery Optimization downloads the same updates and apps that you get through Windows Update and the Windows Store. Delivery Optimization creates a local cache, and stores files that it has downloaded in that cache for a short period of time. Depending on your settings, Windows then send parts of those files to other PCs on your local network or PCs on the Internet that are downloading the same files.

Can Delivery Optimization access my personal files?

  • Delivery Optimization can’t be used to download or send personal content.
  • Delivery Optimization doesn’t access your personal files or folders or change any files on your PC.

What security measures are used in Delivery Optimization?

Delivery Optimization uses the same security measures as Windows Update and the Windows Store.

Windows Update uses information obtained securely from Microsoft to validate the authenticity of files downloaded to your PC. Delivery Optimization also checks the authenticity of each part of an update or app that it downloads from other PCs before installing it.

Which versions of Windows 10 have Delivery Optimization turned on by default?

Delivery Optimization is turned on by default for all editions of Windows 10, with the following differences:
  • Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education:  The PCs on your local network option is turned on by default. 
  •  All other editions of Windows 10: The PCs on your local network and PCs on the Internet option is turned on by default.

How does Delivery Optimization work?

Delivery Optimization works in two ways.

Download updates and apps from other PCs

In addition to downloading updates and apps from Microsoft, Windows will get updates and apps from other PCs that already have them. You can choose which PCs you get these updates from:

PCs on your local network. When Windows downloads an update or app, it will look for other PCs on your local network that have already downloaded the update or app using Delivery Optimization. Windows then downloads parts of the file from those PCs and parts of the file from Microsoft. Windows doesn’t download the entire file from one place. Instead, the download is broken down into smaller parts. Windows uses the fastest, most reliable download source for each part of the file.

PCs on your local network and PCs on the Internet. Windows uses the same process as when getting updates and apps from PCs on your local network, and also looks for PCs on the Internet that can be used as a source to download parts of updates and apps. 

Send updates and apps to other PCs.When Delivery Optimization is turned on, your PC sends parts of apps or updates that you’ve downloaded using Delivery Optimization to other PCs on your local network, or on the Internet, depending on your settings.

Will Delivery Optimization download over metered connections?

As with Windows 8.1, Windows 10 won't automatically download updates or apps if it detects that your PC is using a metered connection. Similarly, Delivery Optimization won’t automatically download or send parts of updates or apps to other PCs on the Internet if it detects that you're using a metered connection.

If you use a Wi‑Fi connection that is metered or capped, make sure you identify it as a metered connection. Here’s how:

1. Go to Start Start button icon, then Settings > Network & Internet > Wi‑Fi > Advanced options. 

2.Use the toggle under Set as metered connection to set your Wi‑Fi connection as metered. 

In the Philippines most of Internet Provider they implement an FUP Fair Use Policy designed to reduce the speeds of only the 3% of users who are responsible for generating large volumes of traffic on your network which greatly impacts the service we offer to other paying subscribers. These customers often have file-sharing software or peer-to-peer/torrent apps on their phones or tablets, and download large-format files such as music, videos and movies consistently.
Fair Use Policy applies to all surfing promos and internet plans for Postpaid and  Prepaid (Sim base 3G/4G/LTE or Wimax/Ultera )
This means customers on an internet promo and plan who exceed 1 GB a day or 3 GB per month (whichever comes first) will experience browsing at slower speeds. In some Internet Provider it will auto drop your LTE signal to 2G if you exceed the bandwidth limit.

How do I turn Delivery Optimization off?

Here’s how:

1. Go to Start Start button icon, then Settings > Update & security > Windows Update , and then select Advanced options. 

2. On the Advanced options page, select Choose how updates are delivered, and then use the toggle to turn Delivery Optimization off. When turned off, you'll still get updates and apps from Windows Update and from the Windows Store.
