Question What is being checked in a smart update?

Odd question I know...

I was making a backup of a large media drive, decided to do the grunt work manually in stages by copying the bulk over manually using Finder drag/drop, then a smart-update to tidy-up.

Problem was that SD! didn't recognize the data I've copied as identical in some way... and insists on recopying everything, all 900GB of it!
Is this normal, or have I set something incorrectly?

Needless to say I'm just using SD! to do the grunt work now, but am interested to know how this all works.....

Happy New Year too....

Pretty normal. We're checking the file dates, times, size, attributes, premissions, EAs, metadata, etc. Finder doesn't preserve all that with a normal Finder copy.
