A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The programs's main executable is PocketCloudService.exe and has been seen to consume an average CPU of less than one percent, and utilizes about 65.89 MB of memory. The software installer includes 27 files and is usually about 18.2 MB (19,082,617 bytes). Updater.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released. In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 8 as well as Windows 7 (SP1). While about 80% of users of PocketCloud Windows Companion come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and United Kingdom.
