After the rise of Microsoft Windows 10 many of us upgraded our old Windows version to the new one.Some others are not much fond with Windows 10 so they are using their old version.But a bad new for those guys who are still stick on their old version, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, because Microsoft is downloading Windows 10 to your hard disk without your permission.

If you’ve noticed that your PC’s hard drive is a little cramped lately, it might be because Microsoft is automatically downloading between 3.5GB to 6GB of Windows 10 installation files — even if you haven’t opted into the upgrade.

According to TheRegister, the upgrade files are being forcefully downloaded even by users who have not opted to digitally “reserve” a copy of Windows 10 in Microsoft’s app.The download not only consumes storage space, but also takes a big bite out of users’ internet data caps and bandwidth — all without notifying people about what’s happening in the background.

Microsoft confirmed the news to The Register, saying that “For those who have chosen to receive automatic updates through Windows Update, we help customers prepare their devices for Windows 10 by downloading the files necessary for future installation.”
