Overview

The minimum system requirements below are for the current version of the Code42 app.

Code42 platform system requirements are also available for Code42 server administrators.

Code42 app

  • These system requirements are the minimum requirements to install the Code42 app. We recommend using more powerful hardware for the best performance.
  • The Code42 app is not supported on devices running ARM processors, which includes most phones and tablets. 
  • If your backup is unusually large (more than 1 TB or 1 million files), you must configure the Code42 app to use more RAM than the minimum requirement.
  • The Code42 app requires an Internet connection for almost all activity, including signing in, backing up, restoring, and changing most settings.  
  • The Code42 app requires a graphical user interface (GUI) for use on all operating systems. The app's desktop UI typically requires a screen area at least 960 pixels wide by 780 pixels high. Some systems may be able to display it as small as 900 pixels by 680 pixels.

Following are the minimum requirements for devices running the Code42 app. However, depending on usage, the Code42 app may need more than the listed minimums to operate effectively.
