Should I run CrashPlan backups when I'm off campus?

It's up to you, but there are some things to consider. CrashPlan makes regular incremental backups, so it uses a lot of bandwidth to move large amounts of data.

  • If your network connection is slow, you or others in your household may notice a performance drop when running CrashPlan.
  • Check your networking plan for any limits on data usage or potential overage fees for exceeding them.
  • Also, when traveling, check the fine print! You don't want surprise fees at checkout over an incremental backup.

See: How do I pause a CrashPlan backup, configure it to run them at a specific time or stop backups all together?
