    I'm presently running the original release version of Windows 10 on my laptop, but would now like to update to the CU, since support has ended. The problem is I'm currently limited to a daily data usage of 1gb.

    So, I'm asking some kindhearted person if they could split the esd file, which is just over 2gigs, into 3 pieces, which I could then download over a 3 day period.

    Would be grateful if anyone can assist

    The easiest option would be to use a download manager suchas flashget. You can limit the bandwidth, pause the download and resume it later.

    Appreciate your response. Here's what I've tried so far:
    Windows download assistant - downloaded files, with resume feature, over a 4 day period; after checking file integrity, deleted file and restarted download from scratch!...over 4 gigs wasted.

    Ida - crashed after downloading 10%

    Edge - Stopped working after downloading around 25%

    Chrome - Downloaded, with resume feature, entire file over 3 day period; file corrupted

    So far, has nothing to show for nearly 10 gigs of very expensive bandwidth. Wary and paranoid of browser/download manager's ability to properly handle large files.

    If this method fails I'll forget about updating for time being

    I see, to be honest it may be a connection issue (dropped data packets).

    Are you using a tethered connection via a hotspot?

    Yes, I'm using a tethered connection via hotspot, and I've also come to the conclusion that the problem is connection related: Downloading a file at one go, ideally within a short time period, without pausing or breaking the connection, yields good results; hence my desire to try this method.

    I wouldn't mind but I have dropped packet issues on my side, thanks to Windows as A Service I have no idea which KB update has messed up all the wireless connections. Every PC / laptop I have has been updated to Windows 10 during the free upgrade period.

    My desktop PC is using a wireless connection and as again thanks to a corrupt LAN driver pushed through Windows Update my ethernet port has ceased to stop working.

    I wish Microsoft would stop pushing through driver updates via Windows Update or provide the option to filter them out.

    The intent is appreciated; anyways, I resurrected my old Samsung Focus, running 7.8, and used it to create a dial-up connection via usb.

    I've tested several downloads so far and all seems to be well. I sent the file to Google Drive and am using the desktop client to sync.

    It's excruciatingly slow but hopefully the end result will be worth it.

    Thanks again for your expressions of interest
