I use CrashPlan as my backup software and aside from it being dog-slow to upload, it's great. Problem I'm having though is the tray icon keeps disappearing from my tray, so I can't right-click and set it to "sleep" anymore after that. Even if I directly run the CrashPlanTray.exe it still doesn't want to show up. The only way to get it to show again is to reboot the whole computer! Does anyone know why this is or how to fix it?

Re: CrashPlan Tray Icon Keeps Disappearing from my Tray!

It has to do with CrashPlan only allowing a maximum amount of memory for it's app, no matter how much free memory your system has. Once you've reached that max, the tray app won't run. You can allow it to use more memory by doing this:

  1. Open the main app

  2. Double-click the "house" logo at the top right of the app

  3. A Java console wildow will pop up; paste in: java mx 5120, restart

  4. Hit Enter

  5. Restart CrashPlan

Shhh.. dont tell anyone, but we also have a private forum area with the really good stuff, see?
