This seems to be an ongoing issue for me, and alas it is still present in RW7.
I make a small change to a site and when I hit publish RW7 wants to publish 800+ files. I can maybe understand a few pages need changing if I have altered the menu structure, but even when that hasn’t happened it still wants to upload 800+ files.
I’ve watched the list of files being uploaded and these are just standard files that DEFINITELY only need upload one-time.
It seems like RW doesn’t know what files are already on the server and so just uploads everything every time.
Any ideas as to what I could do to fix this as often I am on a slow internet connection and so uploading 800+ files can take 30 minutes.
