  1. Xbox Series X Data Usage Issue


    Hello. I need some serious help!

    So I have been experiencing some extremely abnormal data usage readings on my xbox series X ever since I got it (late December 2020). Prior to having the Xbox Series X, I had the Xbox One X and I would use on average anywhere from 400-800GB of data per month. According to the bandwidth usage tool in the settings, in the past two months, I have supposedly used 2.94TB in February and 3.22TB in March. That is absolutely ridiculous and HAS to be an error. I have my xbox on energy-saving mode, automatic updates are therefore off.... I'm at a loss as to how this is possible. The household I reside in has a data cap of 2TB. We received an over-usage fee of over $600 this past month. $600!

    This is where it gets weird.

    Ever since receiving that bill, I've been intently monitoring the data usage of my xbox. When I'm gaming, it would use anywhere from 25-600MB/hr, depending on the game I would play. If I was watching something like Twitch, YouTube or Hulu, it would be anywhere from 1.5-4GB/hr. A few days later, here we are -- April 5th, 2020. Data has been relatively normal up until now (except why in the world does it take so much data to browse the xbox store?) but from 5pm-6pm, it had a reading of 3.18TB! I was on before 5 but had to be somewhere at that time and didn't get home until almost 6. I'm 99.9% certain I had turned my xbox off before leaving.

    How in the world is this possible and how do I get it to stop? Seriously, this needs to be addressed ASAP because there's no way my family and I can afford another bill like last month, which if it was caused by whatever is causing this -- which it likely is -- we shouldn't be held responsible for this...

    :)

    What is this?!?!

    Hey LadyJadey,

    Thanks for posting, and sorry to see the high bandwidth usage! Has your Xbox One's data usage looked accurate after 5/31? This may have been a visual bug, and your Xbox One console most likely has not reached anywhere near 3,600 TB of data usage. The most
    reliable tool to check internet usage will be through your ISP. Any bandwidth usage your Xbox One console actually uses will reflect on the ISP side. I would not worry about your Xbox One console using that much data unless your ISP is reflecting the same
    amount of usage.

    Hope this helps clear up the issue!

    Xbox series S games

    but i know that different version will be available for series S with a smaller data size. I m looking for these versions instead of series X versions.

    Series X name is destined to cause issues, both for sales and legally.

    I don't think it'll be that big on an issue since it's not Xbox One Series X just Xbox Series X. I did wish it was called Xbox Infinite though.

    Copying data

    Hello KylorKnowles,

    Thank you for your post. I understand you are looking to keep your saved-data on your Xbox One but access it from an Xbox Series X. If the games you install are compatible with the Xbox Series X, you should be able to continue where you last left off in
    your games.

    I hope this helps.
