I am transferring files between two home computers, or between my two computers at work. Why does the connection register as “Premium”?
If you establish a connection between two computers behind the same firewall (for instance,
between computers on the same network or LAN), the initial connection between them will initially
appear as “Premium” in the Status bar of your Windows File Manager. However, within 2 minutes, the
connection status should revert to “Direct”.
Note: Any downloads you complete while the connection registers as “Premium” will count towards the monthly “Premium” data transfer allowed by your Edition.
