Data Usage with Spotify Premium

Q: Data Usage with Spotify Premium

I was curious if anyone who has Spotify Premium and uses it regularly on their smartphone could tell me approximately how much their monthly data usage is. I was planning on getting 4GB and was curious if this would be enough with using Spotify.

Thanks

Preferred Solution: Data Usage with Spotify Premium

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

so like the title says i have been using Brinks method to reset Data Usage by deleting the SRU folder contents , now somehow the SRU folder decided to stop rebuilding data , so i would like of all who has any sort of knowledge about this topic to supply tips regarding :
1 - If there is an MS Fixit app dedicated for that issue ?
or
1 - Appropriate folder permissions for the SRU folder
2 - Registry entries related to data usage and folder
3 - Services that regulates/operates data usage
to help me trouble shoot that issue ?

thanks in advance !

Hello,

First off I have 8GB of RAM, and I get notifications all the time that my RAM is high, and it wants to close programs.
The main program that worries me the most is Spotify is using 900MB of RAM when playing and 500MB when not playing. Why is this so high? The games I play are not even that high.
Also is there anyway to reduce how much RAM Chrome uses? All of the chrome added up has to be at least 2 GB of RAM.
I never had problems with RAM on my Laptop that ran Win7 with 8gb of RAM, and I ran the same programs. I switched to win8 because it was supposedly better at using RAM....

Not sure if I have memory leaks elsewhere too but I constantly get notifications that RAM is high, and the lowest it ever sits is at 60%
any help appreciated.

Hi y'all,

I have an ASUS K53E with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit. The issues I'm experiencing CPU usage sky rockets to 100% at start up. The only programs I have installed are Google Chrome and Audacity(a free audio editor(lightweight)). I purchased the computer less than 6 months ago. It also freezes constantly.

I took it into Best Buy 2 weeks ago for tech support. They stated that the memory and hard drive are in working order through their testing. I have also ran tests and found the same thing. They stated that the issue is Windows 7 and they wanted $200 bucks to fix it, but they didn't tell me the specific problem.

Any suggestions?

Other troubleshooting I've done:
-I've restore the computer to a repartition twice. Still froze.
-I've ran CCleaner and othe registry fixer-uppers. No go.

I'm thinking its Win 7, but I didn't create a restore disk. Any inexpensive suggestions?

Use Advanced Boot Options to boot into safe mode (I assume it won't freeze in safe mode; if it does, we will have to try a different strategy).

Run a command prompt (start menu->all programs->accessories->command prompt) and type "sfc /scannow" (without quotes) and hit enter. This will check for system file errors. Post back the results. Note: You may have to run it three times to fix all errors.

If the above does not work, look into doing a Repair Install after first backing up all important files. You may end up having to Clean Install Windows 7 if the computer freezes during repair install.

I recently purchased a Premium (Firewire / USB )External hard drive (with Western Digital 300GB hard drive). Since then I have recomended it to three other friends in my business (Running music studio). We use the drive as a safty backup for projects we are working on and to move projects between studios. I have had the drive lose all it data about 3 times. when i power it up the computer sees it as "unformatted". The other guys have also experienced this 2 to 3 times over the last 2 months. We all know about safely ejecting before removing the drive and not powering up the computer with the drive"on".

The problem is clearly with the Premium Drive box. Anyone else experienced this?

I haven't experienced that, but if multiple boxes of the same brand are doing it, I'd say there's a flaw in the USB <-> IDE controller in the box. I really doubt it's the WD drive.

A:Best way to protect Windows 7 Home Premium data

About 4 years ago, State Audtiors, on the way home left the lap top computer in the car (broke State rules) with the most up to date protection software, and went for a drink. The computer was stolen and confidential information about many residents were compromised.
The point of the Story is that very little can really be done to protect the information. Those interested in obtaining the information are just one small step behind the most current technology.
With enough time, any password can be broken. Even if stored on line, those servers can be hacked and have been in the past.
I think the best way is to Google for free software to help find a stolen Laptop. This will reduce the time the criminals will have to access your information.

A:Data Usage

I doubt that this is happening. But why don't you turn the WiFi off to be really sure.

And 155MBs for Windows updates is not unusual. I have seen as many as 700MBs with one batch of updates. If your Windows is still somewhat backlevel (which most new systems are), you will be getting a lot of those.

I have a 4g hotspot I use for my laptop. The other day I added 5gb to it. Usually that lasts me about a month. I used about 1gb the next day, which is a lot for me in one day. I know that's all I used, based on what I was doing. The next day I find out I'm out of data and my laptop tells me I've used 4.82 GB. Is there any way I can find out the source of this data usage? The service provider couldn't tell me anything.

It doesn't appear to be auto updates, far as I can tell, and those shouldn't total 3+ GB anyway.

Can you point me to the best fixes to stop Win 10 using so much data, no videos being watched, maybe looking a photos on usedguns, too much, not much else.

A:Data usage, windows 10.

In what regard? Are you referring to disk activity. how much memory is taken up or something else? As for as a good deal of memory being taken off of the top you will tend to see that more with the 64bit Windows compared to the 32bit since the 32bit does far more swapping out data to the paging file used as virtual memory while the 64bit preloads more into the active ram. That more or less preloads to some extent the most often used programs for a more efficient start up when going to run something.

If you feel something is still grabbing too much out of the resources the Startup tab found in the Task manager is the place to go to look over your startup items and besides any essentials you can easily disable any that appear to be "memory hogs"? being one of the old school terms there.

First before deciding to disable any a look in the Memory tab will generally indicate just what is taking the most memory. The Performance and Resource meters now seen in 10 can also be a help at times in trying to determine just what is grabbing up the resources if this is software related.

My data usage thru ISP has increased a large amount. From 30G per month to 100 G per month. Not sure what it is.
Have router with 2 wireless laptops and 1 internet capable tv (cable and not used much)
My ISP has proved several dates and times from last week for data usage of about 900M to 2.5G. How do I find this on Win7

I would like to know with say the dates/time supplied how to ascertain which laptop was used and what the IP address was the data obtained from.

Possible that someone has used my wireless but I do have the security on the router (I think).

Can I find this in Win7 rec ords ? or what to use to find out.

If you have no security on your wireless connection then you will have no idea who has been connecting to your service.

Remember if someone sits outside you premises connected to your wireless system you are liable for whatever is downloaded, well you would be in the UK and I have every reason to believe that this is also the case in New Zealand!

Hey guys, I have a data capped mobile internet. With windows 8.1, I could set the connection I'm on to a metered connection, and a simple click on the connection would show how much data I've used, and then I could reset it every billing cycle. In 10, I found the option in settings to turn it into a metered connection, but I see nothing that displays where the usage actually is. There is a free app I found from microsoft that does the job, but it has a lot of adds all over it and it's just a lot to look at it. Is there a simple, quick way of checking, or will I have to use that app?

Was wondering if this has ever happened to anyone. I am on a windows 7 desktop.

-I was away on vacation but noticed that my wifi data usage was way up in the month (~350gb) despite no one being home to use it. I did leave the comp on though.
-I tried to do a full scan using my McAfee program but it crashes before completion. The comp has been running slow for a while. The quick scans do not detect anything.
-i can still run programs, web browse etc with no clear signs of foul play. Although the completed freezes up quite a bit to the point i need to restart.

does any have any tips on this type of a problem? Is getting a different virus protection the answer?

In Settings > Network & Internet > Data Usage : data usage is monitored this day to one month back , this is entirely useless since usually people try to monitor their usage since last bill , windows 8.1 allowed resetting of counter in any specific day so the counter can report useful data you can use , through researching and an earlier post I got the understanding that this is the new vision of Microsoft of how Data Usage should work..

Now the question , for sure Data usage must be using some registry key to constantly store data usage per day to achieve this trick of collecting data use over a month , so resetting should be as easy as deleting that key and allowing it rebuild from that point forward , so anybody know the path to that key or went the extra mile and did the reg file to delete it ?

I have a modem that fits into USB port and an Internet provider (here in Africa) from which you can buy airtime. For the last year and a half I have not had a problem with data usage, but the last few days, my machine has been consuming data at a rate 10x that of normal. That means using 400MB in 10-15 minutes with no programs or applications open, just the desktop! The problem is not the modem (I have tried it on other laptops), apparently it is only my laptop. How can I fix this problem?

A:data transfer out to another pc within lan causes cpu usage to go up to 100% lately

I'd check for a corrupt file stored somewhere.

Since you download or move files you could have a corrupt file stored somewhere causing this.

Or you may have some spyware or other baddies causing it.

I am on the Rogers Heavy Flex Mobile Internet plan, and it has worked great. Until I we went 15 GB over the limit, we cut down our usage, but then I was playing Xbox and a friend told me I could download a game without wifi. I foolishly believed him, and turned the Xbox on offline mode but the download wouldn't begin, so I put the Xbox back on online mode and forgot to pause the 68 GB game download... Two days later I found out and discovered the overage charge would be close to 400$ + the 145$ cost of the plan. It's going to be very hard to afford, so I was wondering if there was a way I could cut the overage price down... Maybe they'll realize it was an accident if I call them?

This morning my wife's Windows 10 laptop started using huge amounts of bandwidth. It looked like "host process for setting synchronization" was using the data. I ran malwarebytes and it cam up clean but the AVG popped up a warning for chrome_update.bat She picked "protect me", rebooted and no warnings come up but after 15 minutes the data usage goes through the roof again.
I have it set for a metered connection, but something is using gigs of bandwidth

I wasn't sure where to put this post but I guess it could be considered a security issue So far I've been asked Collecting Data Usage Anon by Microsoft Hewlett Packard and one of the Add-Ons I forget the name of it right now but when you click yes the little dog wags it's tail for FireFox if I would allow them to collect anonymous usage data so that it could assist improving the software Before I joined this forum I would always click no when asked this because I just didn't like the idea of having any information of mine being sent somewhere Collecting Anon Usage Data However I have this desire to help make the internet a better place sound corny and one way to do that would be to help companys and people who strive towards that same goal With that being said does this pose a security risk Should you absolutely trust the company before you click yes Does anyone else share this information Thanks Richard

A:Collecting Anon Usage Data

Hello Richard,

If you trust the company and software, then it is usually ok if you would like to help them improve their software. The key thing is to read the agreement to see what information they will be collecting for this.

I would never absolutely trust anything though.

Hope this helps some,

Afternoon all,
 
I am going on Holiday/Business Trip for two weeks and have 12GB of teathered data allowance.
 
Id love to be able to use some Remote PC software, at very low quality.
To be able to continue to do some work - whilst im sat beside the pool.
 
Any tips?
I have TightVNC on here, just going to sort some ports out (unless there are other tips).
Im hesitant though - how much data would 2 hours a day (for instance) take up on VNC.
If there is a way to downgrade quality to awful - id be happy with awful - (im literally just reading text and putting X's in boxs (great job right!) but if doing so abroad that would mean downloading large PDFs so I figure VNC may be better data usage).
 
Im going tomorrow, nothing like good planning

A:Low Data Usage on Remote PC software

I would use adblocking DNS to save as much data as possible. Also, I work on the road a lot, I used to use teamviewer and stream netflix from my computer at home, via a wireless jetpack access point. So that I would use my home internet rather than the Jetpacks data. I rarely went over my data limit of 30gigs, although 12 gigs is a rather small amount.
 
 
Now I have this and shut off the internet when I am on the road. With this I am able to grab a signal from a football field away.

It seems that Windows 10 can be quite data hungry and I have found some information on reducing it's usage.  But what I would like to be able to do is have an easy way to switch between "home" and "away" modes.  Where "home" is using my home network with plenty of data available and "away" only uses a minimal amount of data when connected via my smartphone or mobile hotspot which has a very limited amount of data available.   Is this something that could be automatic or at least easily switchable?

bitmeter - will give all sorts of alerts on the PC - but not actually shut it off and if the user closes the program , then it will not monitor - so not a great deal of use - but thought I would mention - in case you have set the users up as users and not admin
then they cannot switch off - but you will need to monitor / set limits

My laptop is running Windows 7 Premium Home edition. Is there a way to figure out what downloaded to my computer on a specific day and/or figure out what web site and/or program used large amounts of data on a specific day within a time range? I recently had three days with unusual spikes in data usage on my internet plan, but I can't figure out what actually sucked up the data. I did not download any movies, did not stream any shows, and the data spike does not correspond with the timing of the most recent Windows update. I have not (knowingly) done anything outside of my "normal" internet behaviors. I am stumped.

For a good number of windows users worldwide, we tether our smartphones with pcs to get internet on the pc.
The problem with smartphone data is that it is very expensive and limited. And our pcs sometimes don't understand that.
So you can have a random program deciding to update itself without you knowing and a lot of data gets wasted.
Is there a way I can monitor data usage in a real time basis? I can check a graph or list of apps and programs using data? And it has to be both apps and programs. Certain program don't have the option to defer updates
Any ideas?

I'm having similar problems. Since June our usage has increased absolutely hugely, for no apparent reason. Last night we used half a gyg, just sending a few emails. We had a phone line fault at the end of June, which lasted for 5 days, and since then our usage has been absolutely huge, and I don't understand why. We have a 5 gyb a month contract, which has always been ample until now, and all we do is surf and email. And yet in July we used 7.35 gyg, even though we were away for 2 weeks, and my DH was in hospital for the last week of the month. In August we used a massive 13.35 gyg, and in September we have used over 9 gybs. Could this be anything to do with the phone line fault? Is it possible that BT =have done something?
 

A:broadband data usage increased recently

i have moved your post to a thread of its own - less confusion when answering

I would talk to BT and explain the situation

how many devices do you have on the connection ?

i would install bitmeterII on all the PCs to monitor usage

http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/fid,67181-order,1-page,1/description.html
this will measure the usage at each PC - not the network - just the pc its installed on - so you need to add to all pcs to see the usage - assuming your not using an xbox or ps3 connected to the interent for movies etc

but it sounds like a fault with the BT usage if you have been away for 2 weeks and this is not your normal usage

A:high cpu usage with streaming data program

Quote:
1. why is cpu not swapping out to memory?


The CPU does not 'swap' any memory, more memory allows you to run more programs at the same time.
By adding 4GB you only increased the amount of memory, in no way it will 'boost' your CPU performance





Quote:
2. why is the same program at same time using double the amount of cpu on the newer notebook?


The Vista laptop uses is 32-bit and the newer one uses 64-bit. 64-bit systems use a little more memory for emulating 32-bit programs(WOW64)





Quote:
3. how does the maximum frequency effect the performance of the cpu?


A higher frequency will benefit the OS and the applications, you will experience a little speed boost

Your CPU is only clocked at 2.3GHz, it is not designed to run intensive programs so its normal to have high CPU usage

You have an old version of Norton Internet security which may affect performance. Upgrade to version 2011

I bought a new HP Spectre yesterday from Best Buy I set it up connected to my out New usage HP wiped just data Spectre wireless an AT amp T MiFi and in minutes it had used up GIGABYTES of data This is New HP Spectre just wiped out my wireless data usage before I even opened a browser It just kept running up the data I only realized what was happening when I got a warning message from AT amp T that I was over my monthly quota and disconnected it I've had the MiFi for years and I usually use less than GB per MONTH I switched it back to my old laptop and it was normal - barely used any I basically only use it for email nothing more nbsp The minute I switched it back on with the Spectre it started running again At this rate the Spectre is going to cost me thousands of dollars in data usage even when I'm not doing anything with it Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this before I return this thing so it doesn't bankrupt me

A:Weird Data usage...svchost.exe PID 1008

Okay, so my post has been viewed over 100 times and no response? Am I doing this wrong or am I not the only one who is completely confused by this?  Since my initial post she has been hit 2 more times for more than 3GB each so it has cost her an additional $60 in under 24 hours.  PLEASE HELP!  Or someone let me know what I'm doing wrong in my posting, should it be somewhere else?

Man, been ages since I've posted on MG.

Anyways, I've been using BitMeter for years to monitor my monthly usage but as of late it's reading way over what my connection speed could have me using, so am looking for an alternative. Double checked with the ISP and they're seeing me using my usual amount too despite BitMeter claiming I smoked my cap back on Nov 5th.

So, can I rely on the Data Usage meter built into Windows 10 instead? Is it pretty accurate for just an overall reading of all inbound and outbound traffic? Or would I be better off finding another separate program like BitMeter?

Is there any way to reset the WiFi Data Usage meter each month?

A:Resetting Windows 10 Data usage meter

I've been trying to figure this out for 3 days now...

I monitor my network traffic with the Networx application. Windows 8.1 allowed users to reset or disable the data usage tracking, but I have not found a way to disable or reset it in Windows 10.

Someone please help.

Just curious ... do PC-to-PC file transfers count towards cable Internet service usage? For instance, if I move 10 GB of data from one PC to another in my Homegroup, is that 10 GB counted as part of the 100GB+ of cable data that I've used?

Thank you!

A:Do PC-to-PC file transfers count towards cable data usage?

Only data exchanged between you and your ISP counts towards your quota. Activity between computers in your local network are not seen by your ISP and are not counted.

Recently I installed a bandwidth metre (ShaPlus)and noticed every time I open, closed and re-opened a page it cost me 100mb or so, so Iv been leaving them open and ATM have 9 tabs open.

I turn the net off occasionally and turn it back on, maybe that reopens all the pages again, but they are not being re-opened so often.

Am I saving data by leaving them open or having a lend of myself?

Q: Spotify

Spotify must take up a HUGE ammount of resources on Windows 7 for some reason, either that or it is completely incompatible. The program opens (after about a minute or so) but do something intensive and the system slows to a snails pace before, eventually, blue screening. I think the message was a 'kernel overload'.

Now, this is nothing to do with my sound drivers, as Windows Media Player is fine. It is only Spotify that causes this, curiously.

So Spotify just arrived in my country (Denmark), and I decided to try it out. Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible for me, to enjoy any music on their client, because the bass is too loud!

Now I have been listening to music in many different ways on my current speaker set up (5.1 surround), including iTunes, Windows Media Player and YouTube; but which ever song I listen to on Spotify, the bass is extremely loud! To the point where I can feel the shaking, while having the volume way down

Is it just me being stupid, or is there really no equalizer in Spotify? I have tried turning my subwoofer volume down in Realtek HD Audio Manager, but it does not make any difference. My subwoofer also has a volume knob, on itself, but that is also turned to it's lowest position.

I'm at a loss, and hope someone will be able to tell why this happens

A:Can't Run Spotify, Windows 7 64 bit

Maybe you've got some Group Policies set, somehow. (Whatever they are...). The Microsoft Technet site says:
 
"To open Group Policy Management, click Start, click Control Panel, click Administrative Tools, and then click Group Policy Management."
My Win7 LapTop (a Dell Latitude) has all kinds of Corporate Management/Restrictions, and I don't even see a "Group Policy Management" entry. (In fact, I'm surprised that I can browse this website. ) But maybe you have such an entry, and it might tell you something.

Hi,
Does anyone else have issues using the Spotify app on their Lumia 635? I've had the app for over a year now and it's awful. It's constantly freezing or crashing and at times it claims that it's offline when it's not or that I need to sign up to Premium to use it when I am already a Premium member. In addition it's just generally slow and only works at start up one out of every ten times. Opening the app up to listen to music is a 25 minute process of starting and restarting the app in hopes that it will start to work. No one at Microsoft knows how to approach the issue but friends of mine with other Windows phones don't have this issue so I'm wondering if it's just a 635 thing.
Anyone else going through this?

I installed Spotify Premium (which works very well) but then I started getting "Not Responding" in Adobe, Excel and QuickBooks. I uninstalled Spotify and the "Not Respondings" stopped. After a month I reinstalled Spotify Premium and now I am having the "Not Responding" problems again. Have I done something wrong? Can I fix it or do I have to cancel my subscription?

A:Spotify and "Not Responding"

Are you running Windows 10 in a virtual machine ?
 
Press on the Windows Key on your keyboard, then type "devmgmt.msc" without the quotes, wait 2 seconds and press Enter. Make sure there is no missing driver or disabled hardware.
 
Another thing would be to try to limit the amount of CPU threads the software is allowed to use. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL, click on Task Manager, go to the Processes tab, right click spotify.exe or whatever software has issues and click on "Set Affinity...". Then click any random checkbox but only select one "CPU".
 
The very last test I would try is trying to find bad sectors on your hard drive. Go to your hardware vendor's website and run their diagnosis tool.
 
Good luck.
