    Thanks, it worked perfectly for me too. I am very surprised that they allow the client to crash with the service with no notification at all to the end user.

    wow, I have been racking my brain looking at ways to stop it from crashing, thinking it was my hard drive that has been acting up, but after changing the number to 2048 in the .ini file it has so far not crashed! Hope that solves my problem.

      /library/launchdaemons/com.crashplan.engine.plist « Mac
      /usr/local/crashplan/bin/run.conf « Ubuntu · Linux · Debian
