Updates to our minimum system requirements
We have updated the minimum system requirements to the following:
- 2 GHz dual-core CPU
- 2 GB memory
- 2 GB drive space
If you are running one of the recently unsupported operating systems, we encourage you to update your operating system as soon as possible.
If you are running a soon-to-be unsupported operating system, we encourage you to begin planning how to update your operating system now.
We will not forcibly discontinue CrashPlan on unsupported operating systems, and your backup may continue seamlessly for some time. However, running an unsupported configuration puts your data at risk and you may be unable to restore your files or continue to run the software in the future.
If you have any questions, please contact our Support team for further assistance.
