Question: How long should Duplicator program take to find duplicates? Currently, the program has been running for many hours to scan 6200 files on my NAS. To me this seems to be an unreasonable amount of time. Is there something else going on? (this is the 1st time I run the program). I would presume that a comparison of file names would be done to detect duplicates.

If it helps, I am running a MBPR i7 using a CAT5 to my NAS using RAID 1. Speeds range from 35-70 MB/s. on the network.

Thanks.

It works by decoding the audio for each of the files, not filename comparing. So many hours reading the files over the network is correct.
