Answer first: Exclude c:\\users\\yourname\\folding from your online backup if you have one.

2 problems:
Problem 1) Been talking to admin at the Stanford forum. If you are folding Bigadv, your logfile is in C:\\users\\yourname\\folding. Most online backups as a default backup document type files in the c:\\users directory whenever they change. This means you may be chewing up your bandwidth by uploading an eternal stream of the constantly changing logfile.

Problem 2) I reported this in another thread, but since it is related what the heck. My online backup software (Crashplan) locks files when it backs them up. If it backs up the before mentioned folding directory the folding core loses exclusive access to the logfile and your bigadv projects tanks with an "unstable machine" Took me months and few million of lost points to figure this one out. dang. Thought you'd want to know.
