Using online backup should not get in the way of using your computer for your regular everyday tasks. Ideally it should be able to do its job and let you do yours. While this memory usage table is not computer as I review more services I will add to it, as well if you use a service feel free to use the form below the table to let me know what your memory use is of the many online backup services. As I get more results I will break the table up by service.
I took the screenshots as each service was doing a backup. Granted you probably don’t sit there with the online backup service information open like that but that makes the playing field level. As you can see from the table to far the highest memory use was from CrashPlan on Ubuntu with a whooping 504.9 MB of memory being used. The best is Backblaze only using 4.38 MB of memory on a Windows 7 machine.
