Backup Process too intense

Does anyone have any ideas on how to reserve memory or allocate processor useage for just a single process? When I run my backup at night it takes all of my recources. I hate not being allowed to use my machine when I want.

Thanks ahead of time!

yeah, consult the "nice" man page for more details, but you can lower the priority of it...

keep in mind however, that disk access is disk accesss..
