Describe the bug
The process “anytypehelper.exe” is running all the time (for hours), and it always has a high internet consumption. When I am with some other software that requires internet, it is disturbed by having Anytype open

when trying to kill the anytypehelper.exe process, I get an error, which closes the software

after this it does not automatically open any log
this happens every time anytype is opened (not fixed by rebooting)

System Information:

  • OS: e.g. Windows 10
  • Device Manufacturer/Model: Desktop
  • Anytype Version: e.g. 0.20.9

@hoyos_marcos Anytype uses more bandwidth (rather than regular apps) because it is distributed application. It permanently tries to find some peers (your devices), asking them for updates, and may send some data directly if was updates were requested. In background mode it shouldn’t be more than 50kb/s.

Have you used media inside your account? Do you have another devices? This may increase data transfers when your devices will sync.
