Crashing crashplan

I'm evaluating CrashPlan for performing backups of my home computers. It worked flawlessly for my smaller files (Photos, documents) but started crashing when I added my video directory.

After a quick search I discovered that the CrashPlan backup service was exceeding its memory allocation. It was trivial to change the allocation from 512m to 1024m:

  1. Stop the CrashPlan Backup Service
  2. Launch notepad as Adminitrator
  3. Edit C:\Program Files\CrashPlan\CrashPlanService.ini
  4. Change -Xmx512m to -Xmx1024m
