    Is it possible? Yes.

    The network admin should:
    scan your computer for viruses
    inspect the security priviledges of all user accounts that have logged onto the computer
    check for running processes

    Now presuming he didn't pick "4 GB" out of the air, something has led him to this amount of data. He should look further into this, and try to identify file names, types of files, etc. and then attempt to locate them on your computer.


    He should then properly lock down your computer and your user account so that downloading isn't possible.

    Keep in mind, you can download information and not keep any files, for example, when you stream music and/or video from the internet.

      sir, that means it may be because of virus.

      Are you 100% sure it may because of virus or anything.

      The network admin can't explain what i have downloaded but the log file show that i have downloaded this much of data.

      The network admin is inexperienced and he dont know how to trace.

      so can you pls tell us the step to trace.

        There is not enough information to say who or what requested 4 GB. I would ask him how he came up with that figure, namely 4 GB.

          What about thinhs like playing music/video from the web? That would download large amounts of data although since you dont save anything, it doesnt seem to be a "download" in your mind.

          It doesnt take long to rack up 4Gb that way.
