The Code42 CrashPlan icon in the notification area gives Windows users quick access to CrashPlan features.
If you are using version 5.1.x or later of the Code42 app, see the reference guide for the Notification Area And Menu Bar App instead.
Version 5 is no longer supported. See the Code42 app reference for the latest version of this content.
The Code42 app adjusts the percent of CPU it uses depending on if you are present and working on your computer versus if you are away from your computer. To determine if you are away or present, the Code42 app relies on the notification area menu. Consequently, if you do not launch the notification area menu, CrashPlan always uses the “away” setting.
