Should I run folding@home on my 5 dollar plan droplet? How much would this affect bandwith?

Hello there, @Filice

You can install it on your droplet without any issues.

Keep in mind that you can also upgrade your droplet at any time in case you need to do so. You can check our docs for more information on the bandwidth billing:

Hope that this helps!

Hi @Filice,

You shouldn’t have any issues with this, in terms of using it on any of the droplets as long as the disk space is sufficient for you.

Now, regarding the excess of data transfer, this is something that depends entirely on you. Depending on the data you wish to transfer I mean.
