Found this while searching for something else and thought it might be useful for someone here based on some of the other posts I have seen:

http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/26225-network-data-usage-reset-windows-10-a.html

There is also an app in the App store for Windows that will let you monitor usage on you computer for free (add based but you can buy the Pro version for $1.49).  It lets you set the Billing Cycle and amount of data per cycle to help you keep track of it.

"it is pure High Quality portable freeware". 
If someone said that to me I would assume it was spam.  Especially if it mysteriously came in an email.  You also posted this in another forum...your name is at the bottom right.

There is a fine line between Promotion and spam , sordum.org is a Non profit organization they produce portable freeware , they don't try to sell something. and non of their product include any kind of spyware or adware , how can you call it spam

Unsolicited emails and product ads are spam.  No fine line about it.  Your original post said you "found" this neat thing.  That is deceiving because it appears you are associated with it and promoting it.

Glasswire is a great program for Windows based computers for those that want more detail of their data usage.  It's free.
