Solved Does diagnostic data viewer collect your data while Offline?

October 7, 2018 at 19:55:17
Specs: Windows 10 , i3/16
Here an interesting question,
Do you think windows 10 diagnostic data viewer still tracks your data in your system when you’re offline? So would it collect your data while offline and then the minute you get on the internet send that entire period? Or does it only really track your activity once there’s an internet connection only? It’s just a question I can’t really answer myself.

I do believe them for what they say at this point, with a grain of salt ofcourse.
The "full" version which also sends browser history, I do not trust so much.
::if for whatever reason you really do not trust microsoft, why not just switch to apple haha, i mean linux

But I do like Microsoft being more transparent with their customers, by showing them what they collect, partly solved the whole trust issue scenario.

My quess would be yes, i mean the service is running the moment you start your PC.
It probbaly just tries to send it to MS every X amount of hours.
No connection? try again in an hour...

I don't know for certain but it would seem highly feasible to collect the information when you are offline and I would expect MS to do so.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Welll, Do you think if you clear the history on diagnostic data viewer from the offline period before connecting back online, it might not be able to send that time period of usage? or will it just erase what you see and still send them the data from somewhere else in the system?

In your own opinions with the data set on basic instead of full, do you think Windows truly just sees hardware info and problems as they claim ? Or do you think they can see some info of your personal files too and they’re just not telling us the full details?
