I have a feeling you might have been unlucky and had a windows update done on your laptop and possibly a few backups taking place in background.
For your laptop it might be no harm in setting your home wifi network as a metered network to reduce data use.

I just wanted to update you on my data usage, after trying all the good suggestions I got here. After waiting for the monthly allowance to renew, I've been watching it vigilantly every day. We seem to be using about half the amount now, so around 10GB a day (sometimes a bit more, sometimes less.) It's still a bit higher than I'd like for only 4 people in the house and no console connected, but it's definitely better than it was. No spikes of 24GB in a day!
One interesting thing - after changing our router password (again!) I decided to change
the name of the router too and called it "This is not your wifi!" Two nights later I discovered someone nearby had changed theirs to an expletive. A response? Perhaps.....

Hey @Margaret 👋 It's great to hear your data usage is now under control and you can keep track of this. That most definitely seems like a response, if not a very nice one! 😆 Mairéad
