Hi guys. Can someone please help by telling me what Android OS seems to be downloading that it's gotten to over 6 gigs.

It downloads almost 700mb to 1GB everyday.

I'm afraid it will do same on my mobile network. Anyway I can turn what's being downloaded off?

Thanks.

Would that affect any app such as my email auto sync, Whatsapp, hangouts and others?

It's because of the keep this device backed up option that comes with Android. I had the same issue. Disable it from the backup and reset menu.
