incremental backup getting stuck on big files

incremental backup getting stuck on big files

Hi there

I'm backing up a lot of data over an sshsf mount.
My problem is that I need to interrupt the backup. When I resume, it
starts looking at files from scratch. It already has all the unchanged
files, so it doesn't have to transfer them again. But on large files,
i.e. 10s of GB, it stops for a long time, multiple hours.
Is this expected, am I doing something wrong, can I do something to
avoid the slowdown?

I'm using version 0.14
