The tools at are nice, but the graph only shows that there is data being used, but NOT HOW MUCH.  It only shows a bar chart indicating "Data Consumed".  Some bars are tall and others are not.  Well, duh.  I can't tell if it's 1gb or 15 in any given day or hour.  There's no way to tell how much data is represented by a bar.  Genius!  <sigh>

If you want better definition on data usage, Glass Wire is a great free app that you can install Windows computers. It not only give you usage by time, but also what actually used the data.

Unintentionally sharing your router with a "neighbor", something other than your computer (DirecTV, BluRay, Smart TV, tablet, smart phone, etc.), latent data reporting from your modem....  Just to name a few ways that this can happen.
