Do you mean cpu/memory usage by ddb? If amount of user data to be backed up is reasonable, the user normally won't notice that ddb is running (except the increased buzz of fan if you are on a Mac).  The Integration feature with Win/Mac OS enables the user to run backup without launching ddb.  

Backups other than the first time typically consume much less resource and bandwidth thanks to de-dup: only changes to your files are backed up.

Moreover, the end-user has control over backup schedule and location. If the spare disk capacity left on your hard drive goes down to under 10%, DDB generates a friendly warning message for the end-user. The end-user can customize the disk capacity to be used by DDB, e.g. 15% of the disk capacity. If you would like to back up large number of files on a busy machine, you can cutomize the backup schedule such that backup only happen during off-peak hours.
