Slowwww backups

Is anybody else finding the backups incredibly slow now? I recently set up a firewire 800 drive as a backup for my main SSD drive and each daily backup seems to take an awfully long time, even when very little has happened during the day.

As a test I just ran a backup, which took about 20 minutes and then decided to run it again immediately afterwards. Now in theory little or nothing has changed in that one minute interval, so I would expect SuperDuper! to fly through this second smart update backup in seconds, but it has so far taken over 15 minutes and still not nearly finished.

This is High Sierra with an SSD backing up to the external drive, which is also in APFS format. It's never been like this before in the past and I'm using SuperDuper! version 3 (100).
