Default Transferring files - Bandwidth usage?

Please Login to Remove!

I was transferring some music files from my external hard drive to my playbook (both devices were connected to my computer, the computer was sort of a middleman in this process) and my bandwidth monitoring program showed a huge spike in bandwidth usage.

Being in Canada, I have to monitor how much bandwidth I use because we have metered internet here, and being close to my monthly limit, I have to be careful I don't go over the limit

Anyways, my question is, does the file transfer process use any bandwidth at all or is it just my program reacting incorrectly? I turned off the wifi on my computer, but I want to play it safe, internet access is expensive here
