YKhan, you say you exclude it from your main backup file- do you mean your full disk backup? If so, I didn't think you can exclude any files from a full disk backup.

No, it's a file/folder backup, so I excluded it from that. If this were backed up through a disk image backup, then it wouldn't have been nearly so slow, and wouldn't need excluding. Disk imaging is faster than file/folder backups because Reflect directly reads the disk, rather than going through the OS's slow file system access method.

I noticed it is way slower to run in Windows 10 vs Windows 8.1.

There is a folder I backup, full backup once month, incremental rest of month, and most of the incrementals there is no changes so no new backup made, but the scanning for changes is way slower than it was on Win 8.1.

To make this even more of an eye opener, the Win 8.1 setup had Nod32, the Win10 setup currently has no running a/v,  (defender realtime is off).
