Version 4 is no longer supported. See the Code42 app reference for the latest version of this content. 

Considerations

The CrashPlan 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 CrashPlan app relies on the notification area menu. Consequently, if you do not launch the notification area menu, CrashPlan always uses the “away” setting.

CrashPlan menu options

To access the CrashPlan menu, right-click the CrashPlan icon in the Windows notification area.
