Backup seems to copy some unchanged files

Hi Dave

I created a custom script which excludes two iTunes Music Libraries (I have 3). After making the change I backed up the system. During the backup it showed almost 8 gb of files being written.

Two days later I ran another backup. Same result as the first time, even though there had been no significant changes in the HD files. Both backups took about 25 minutes, which is very long.

I've sent a copy of the most recent log.

I'm using a G5 iMac with 250 gb drive. 10.4.10. Backup made to Seagate 300 gb Firewire drive, partitioned into 3 segments. One segment has the bootable backup. 215 gb capacity, 112 gb free.

Appreciate any guidance you can offer.
2017 iMac 40 gb RAM; 2TB Fusion SSD (10.14.6)
MacBook Pro 15" 2.3ghz i7/ 16 gb RAM; 500GB SSD (11.1)

Envoy Pro EX SSD - Thunderbolt 3 for iMac
