- CrashPlan for Home
This article is intended for CrashPlan for Home users. For Code42 CrashPlan and CrashPlan for Small Business documentation, read this page on our enterprise support site.
This article provides the minimum system requirements for using the currently-supported versions of the CrashPlan app.
- These system requirements are the minimum requirements to install the CrashPlan app. We recommend using more powerful hardware for the best performance.
- If your backup is unusually large (more than 1 TB or 1 million files), you must configure the CrashPlan app to use more RAM than the minimum requirement.
- The CrashPlan app requires an internet connection for almost all activity, including signing in, backing up, restoring, and changing most settings.
Alpha, beta, and other pre-release operating systems are not supported. Only the specific operating system versions listed on this page are supported.
