Why is SD! taking so long?

I had disconnected my "main" SD! backup drive while I was attempting to resolve the problem I was having with my smaller SD! "secondary" backup drive. The last scheduled backup to that "main" SD! drive was 2 days ago.

I reconnected the "main" drive, and manually initiated an SD! backup, and it is still running after many hours, instead of the typical 20 minutes or less it usually takes. Looking at the progress window, it appears that SD! is going through every file and backing each up as if all had changed since the last time it backed up to that drive.

Is it normal for SD! to do this, even though only a small handful of files have actually changed since the last backup?
