I wrapped this and the reg change suggested by @Alex G. into a batch file at gist.github.com/maphew/ce01f28851dd15c8948a

Server Fault indicates this reg change is sufficient, serverfault.com/questions/695916/…

comment Web download manager aware of only new and changed files
Here's the latest (I think) version of my wget attempts. Maybe my problems were due to the wrong mix of command line options(?) gist.github.com/maphew/0f2f1b4f3659440bae82

comment Web download manager aware of only new and changed files
I did try wget a few of years ago but ran into issues with it occasionally corrupting archives. As best I recall it had to do with seeing a different (larger) file size and then appending the new content to the old file instead of overwriting the whole thing. I was unwilling to forego using "resume incomplete" download to accommodate this, because we often experienced dropped connections. It might be time to revisit now though.

comment Asus router reports different bandwidth usage from ISP
Last paragraph on Traffic Logging with Asus RT-N56U indicates the router is at fault, "I would do about a gigabyte of downloads and iptables would think that only 200-300kb had gone through. I managed to narrow it down to the fact that instead of the routing going via iptables, it would go through the hardware based NAT and it wouldn’t be accounted for". Though it's unclear to me whether that was before or after he started hacking the manufacturer's management software and firmware.

comment Asus router reports different bandwidth usage from ISP
@DavidPostill I was happy when I first read your comment, because that's an easy formula to reconcile with, but it was just a coincidence with the particular day I chose to open with. I added a table with a dozen days of stats from both router and ISP.

@davidbaumann, it's not upload. Both the router and isp stats show direction and combined columns. I'll add that to the Q.

comment Can I move $Windows.~BT to another volume?
WTF?! The Forbes article is downright maddening. I will move when I'm damn well ready Microsoft, my choosing, not yours. Alex thanks for your encouragement to persist. I shall do just that.

comment How to disable the “Get Windows 10” icon shown in the notification area (tray)?
wusa /uninstall /KB:3035583 did not work on my computer, I still got the upgrade nag notice on logon and the icon in my system tray. I tried taking ownership and deleting the GWX folder. All files but 9 were deleted, "access denied" for those. Solution for delete: icacls GWX\*.* /grant %username%:F && rd /s/q GWX. Finally at next reboot the nag was gone.

@Ramhound eh? The Store calls them that: "To use this add-in, you’ll need ... Excel 2013 Service Pack 1 or later ..." [emph. added] (ref)
