Hi all,

My first post and it's a request for help with a relatively new (to me) issue.

I have recently tried to sync my music files to my NAS, historically, it's been through SMB, but now this route fails to connect and I can only access the NAS via AFP. So, access is resolved, but now when I sync the files, FFS wants to resend every file in the folder and that's going to take 24 hours.

Why has this changed to a situation that won't allow file differences to be mirrored and what can be done about it?

AFP likely handles timestamps differently

Well, hopefully, using FFS again after this time will result in a quicker sync. 25 hours+ was not ideal.
