If you look at the start time up the top it started at 18:00 and finished the next morning at 8.55 over 14 hrs which
seems very poor perfomance??? But if you look at the robocopy totals the total time is 2:32 ??? The speed is 22595743 bytes
a second (172 megabits a second)  which seems to me a very good performance. If it is taking 2:32 what is doing for the other
time??

Why have you got 295567 skipped files? It´s possible that files are in use? the time displayed is the effective time of copy, no waiting time because robocopy locked files or whatever

it's the "extra" time of 2:19:44 where is is checking if a file has to be copied over, actually, comparing the flags/times of the local and remote file

Is skipped files not just files that have no changes so do not need to be copied ???

So if i am understanding this extra time this is the scan of the files comparison is taking 2:19 and then
the copy over the network is taking all the other time??

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

What this tells you is that it went through 15502 Directories--all but three were already there so it only copied 3 new directories. It read through and compared 295685 files, files on the source and compared them to what was on the destination--based on that comparison it only copied 118 "new" files (new or changed)--the time it took to copy those "new" files and directories took 7:58--the remaining time of 2:19:44 was used to compare files.

This does not compute with the notes above and so cannot explain this. Can you re-run it again for me and let me know these times again--it should only be showing around 2 hours and 20 minutes elapsed and not 8.
