Theme Searching for modified files, please wait...
Why does this take so long? I have a rather large archive (a bit over 3TB) stored in Google Drive Backup. When I initiate a backup, it must search for modified files which, as far as I can tell, is a process that either never ends or takes an egregious amount of time to complete. I'm talking hours here, and then I usually just give up. If I run a consistency check, it will work right away after that, but a consistency check on that quantity of data takes nearly a week. Is there any way to speed up this process?
Can you detail the options you have set for the backup?
Use NTFS Scan
Force Using VSS
Use System VSS Provider
Can you also elaborate on the location of the source files: Are they on local disk, external disk, NAS, File Server, etc.
Some estimate of the number of files
Are you using block-level backup scheduling (this would be visible if you select advanced scheduling and then you'll see a block-level schedule on the Advanced tab in the wizard). Or are you simply using Incremental Backup?
