    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?
