Excessive disk wear when detecting changes on source directory

Detecting changes on source directory by the desktop client causes much reads resulting in excessive disk wear. And excessive reading time. I have around 9GB backed up in your cloud.

This only happens, obviously, if I close the program and re-open again a time later.

I don't wan't to keep the program running for security reasons, for example, a ransomware attack could encrypt my local files and their mirror in the cloud as well.

Note I use the backup feature only. Not file sync at all.

Just fyi, this backup program, Bvckup 2 (https://bvckup2.com/) utilizes a feature called "destination snapshot". You could implement "source snapshot" or something alike to reduce hdd/ssd wear.
