Hello,

I have 1 folder backup.
this folder is almost 1TB in size and have almost 100K files.

Once Source and destination are backed up, and I change only one small file - the software is detected the change - BUT scanning the whole source (all folders and all files).

Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you

No, you aren't doing anything wrong.

The only way to deduce file system changes _incrementally_ is to parse the NTFS journal for the volume. Bvckup 2 doesn't do this, so it has no choice but to re-scan. It does implement multi-threaded scanning and generally tries to be as fast as possible about it.

PS. Your post title says "destination" but the text talks about "source" scans. Which one is it? Because the program _can_ be set up to skip destination scans.
