I recently noticed that Dropbox is taking about 50-90% of my CPU for more than just a few seconds sometimes - mostly when downloading/syncing many or large files.
Still, I guess that even when syncing a lot of data, there's no reason to use that much CPU (perhaps network or disk..)
Any ideas or suggestions? How can I make Dropbox use less CPU?
