I'm syncing a local folder to a SMB drive on my raspberry pi over Gigabit Ethernet. The compare times take about 15mins, compared to using GoodSync which takes 2 mins. I donated and got the threading option and turned it up and didn't make a difference. Actuall write speeds as expected, 80-120MB/s. So why are the compare times so slow?

If you were to compare a second time with FFS, it would be almost immediate. My guess it Goodsync is keeping some kind of database between sessions, like a table of contents.
