Quality of life: speed of comparison of local and remote folder with many files

Example: have two folders, one local and one remote, with thousands of files each (say 2500).

Do the comparison (basic setup, no changes for the comparison tool). It takes quite a bit. Now I am aware that with 2000 elements, there are 4 million comparisons (and if it is based on size, datestamp, name it is 3 times 4 million), but they should be a breeze on whatever CPU that is not from the 90s. Instead on a A10 cpu (https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/amd/a10 5750M) it takes between 10 to 15 seconds to compare. Of course it is not that tragic, but could it be improved or is it really "nice to have" ?

Thanks!

Re: Quality of life: speed of comparison of local and remote folder with many files

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.
