Keeping CrashPlan from disrupting your home network

Tags how-to

Some members of our community have taken office computers home, and nearly everyone has increased demand on their home network due to working from home.

Because the default configuration allows Code42 CrashPlan to use all available network throughput to complete a backup, if you have substantial volumes of data to protect at home you might find your streaming services, Voice over IP (VoIP) calls or video conferencing sessions disrupted during backups.

Objective

To have a better backup experience with CrashPlan on a home network.

Environment

Code42 Crashplan

Procedure

Follow instructions in Code42's "Use the Code42 app with limited bandwidth" support article.
