Scanning HD...wasted time

Recommended Posts

Observation: I used the assistant to backup one small folder on the desktop. I noticed it's scanning the entire 1TB disk. Seems like it should just scan the selected folder.

If you want to just back up a single folder, the best option is to make that a "Favorite Folder" for the Source.

 

Otherwise, you have to scan the entire drive.

This is by design, and is the expected behavior. Not to say that the current design is the "best" one, but it is what it is. An explanation why is beyond the scope of this reply. Steve Maser has provided the correct workaround.
