Following the publication last year of the data collected by Windows 10's built-in telemetry and diagnostic tracking, Microsoft today announced that the next major Windows 10 update, due around March or April, will support a new app, the Windows Diagnostic Data Viewer, that will allow Windows users to browse and inspect the data that the system has collected.

While I doubt this tool will alleviate any of the concerns some people have over Windows 10's data collection, it does at least give some insight into what's being sent to Microsoft - assuming, that is, you trust the reporting to be truthful and accurate.

Are you that clueless or just a bad troll? Reasons for HDD thrashing while torrenting could be numerous... like for example that it's an old, fragmentned OS install and a popular torrent, with lots of peers / transfers of different fragments of the file, scattered across the disk.
And your ISP sees all your traffic, that's all they need to have to know you're torrenting.
And I suppose you don't realize that most seeder boxes are run on Linux... (not to mention servers in general)
