I’ve over 6TB of Data, mainly pics and video files. The upload Internet speed from ISP is 10 mbps. I’ve noticed if the file which is getting backed up >1GB i get upload speed close to 9 mbps and at times even 10 mbps. But if the file is < 1GB then i get upload speed close to 2 mbps. My Deduping setting is on “Automatic” which I dont intend to change because as the data is backed up i’m moving files (between folders) to better organize my data. Any suggestions on how to increase the upload speed of smaller files (<1GB) ?

The behaviour your describing, regarding file upload speed is what happens when you copy files on your local computer, although less noticeable because the computer is able to cope with a lot more data.
If you copy one million files with 1 Kb each or copy one file of 1 Gb, the latter will be copied substantially faster. In the end it’s one operation again a million.
On the other hand, headless installs cannot (AFAIK) control CrashPlan’s processor occupancy – if you could, by increasing the threshold you should see an improvement.
In any case, Code42 write about this just like it is – a tradeoff. You either get the speed boost by disabling all the deduplication features or it will be slower. You can read all about that, including Code42’s opinion, here:
