In the last day, or so, I create a full system backup task, using drives, not files. The full backup and verify took a bit less than 3 hours. Yesterday, I ran an incremental backup task, using drives, not files, against that full backup. The copy took about 56 minutes and the verify took about 39 minutes. This was longer than I would normally expect. So, I almost immediately added 1 file to C:\, and again ran the same incremental backup task, expecting that a single file being added would result in a rather quick incremental backup. I was astonished that the copy again took about 56 minutes and the compare again took about 39 minutes. Is this the expected behavior? Is there a way to make the incremental backups finish faster?
