You would think that what exactly is sent to Microsoft Windows 10 that is transmitted back to the company. So it basically includes the text which is typed on keyboard sent every 30 minutes and anything said into a microphone is transmitted back plus transcripts of the things that you say while using Cortana and also including index of all the media files on your computer also and when and only when your webcam is first enabled, 35mb of data is transmitted back and finally the telemetry data.
