Crashplan Deduplication slowing you down?

I’ve noticed that Crashplan isn’t saturating my 400kbps uplink (Northland Cable… just barely faster than satellite) even though I’ve given it no upload restrictions… I think the problem is with Crashplan’s De-duplication running too intense of an algorithm for my mere AMD Phenom II black quad core processor to handle efficiently.

Setting data de-duplication to minimal allowed me to saturate that upload…
Maybe if I was on dialup or have quad dual core xeon processors I might get better speeds by bumping data-dedup back to full.
