WSUS Overdrive

Hi all, Im having a slight problem,

 

I installed WSUS yesterday on my WHS 2011 and selected everything to be syncronised, and I was meant to uncheck drivers and didnt..

 

I left my server running the syncronisation overnight and when I woke up its downloaded 70GB`s worth of updates :s

 

I then went into my sync and unchecked Drivers but since its downloaded another 8GB, How can I stop or see what its downloading and

how much is left if I leave it to download.

 

My ISP wont be pleased :P

Did you specify which OS's for WSUS to check on? If not, in addition to removing the drivers, this should lighten the load a bit.

I unchecked quite a few more, restarted the server and its started downloading already

It's been awhile since I've been into WSUS, but it seems like there was a filter for a time stamp, i.e., tell the server to only download from a certain date forward.

Im at 85GB Now, so ive stopped the WSUS update service. I went into the sync settings and unchecked all but a few OSs and it was still going.

 

My ISP wont be happy so I might uninstall WSUS and try again when my bandwith has setttles.

 

Heres a few SS

Will your ISP cut you off or just charge you extra for 'overage'?

If they would, they would have done so already.

 

Doesn't that depend on what the cap is?
