How to stop CrashPlan from continuously crashing

Thanks Andrew Ferguson for pointing me to this.

First, stop CrashPlan:

sudo launchctl unload /library/launchdaemons/com.crashplan.engine.plist

Now, edit /Library/launchdaemons/com.crashplan.engine.plist, changing:

-Xmx512m

to something larger

-Xmx2048m

And, then restart CrashPlan with:

sudo launchctl load /library/launchdaemons/com.crashplan.engine.plist

(May want to later go back and revert to a smaller memory size once the backup backlog is cleared out.)
