Incremental backup - What am I doing wrong?

    I am smbmounting a NAS unit to /mnt/nas on my server.

    I've enabled "Incremental backup (only backup what has changed. (**No Compression**, not compatible w/ftp backups)"

    ...yet every night the backup is moving 15 - 20 GB out of 50GB total worth of sites. I'm thinking something isn't right. Plus it takes 8 hours to run, and the NAS and server are connected via 1,000 Mbit Ethernet.

    Am I unusual or is this just the rule of the game?
