How to Avoid Time-Consuming Rescanning of Source and Target Folders?

I have setup a ViceVersa profile to copy files between multiple computers (they are all servers). It is working fine. However when I create a test file and save it to a local folder (the source) that is in the profile, it takes a while to get around to the other machines even though I have the profile set to update immediately as soon file changes are detected. 
I'm concerned about this, because the root folder in this profile contains 10GB of data and if I save just one file it runs the entire profile to update (it rescans the entire source and target folders). What can be done to avoid this and avoid using too many resources?


You can use the new file or subfolder level change detection functionality in VVEngine Server Premium.
The new file or subfolder level change detection functionality does not require a full re-comparison of source or target and this speeds up execution substantially, especially over slow connections or with a large amount of files. VVEngine will keep track of which files have changed, are new or have been deleted, and when the profile runs it will apply changes to the other side without performing a full rescan.
