Salesforce Backup Client Requirements

The backup client must meet the following requirements.

Hard Drive

The client must have a minimum of 8 CPUs/processors and 8GB of memory. We recommend that the client have 16GB of memory.

You must have 120% of the Salesforce used space to store the data.


  1. Sign in to Salesforce with an administrator account.
  2. In the upper right of the page, Click Setup.
  3. In the navigation pane, click Administrator > Data Management > Storage Usage.

The Storage Usage pane displays the Data Storage and File Storage space in the Used column. You must use both of these values to determine the space.
