I a new to this software trying it out. Im trying to back up some folders and the source only has a few new files/folders. The destination is almost identical.
But I notice that Fbackup is scanning every single file even if things are unchanged. And its taking alot longer then it should because it should be scanning the new/changed files and just copying the new/changed ones right? This is the first backup ive done so Im not sure if this is normal for the first backup or if its going to scan every single file all the time

FBackup will scan all source files and folders to determine if they are new/modified or not. In this time, it creates the list of files to be backed up.

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here:
