Answer For a repeated task, if the next run time arrives while the current session of a task is still in progress, the current session will be terminated and give way to the next run. If you connection is low, it makes little sense to increase the repeat frequency. After all, even if the task is interrupted in the progress of remote directory scanning or file transfer, the next new launch of the task will find out the missing files and wrap up the synchronization process eventually, given that it has enough time to do so. Find out how much time it takes for a whole session of a task to finish (connect to your server, scan all the directories and transfer all files etc) and specify a more reasonable interval value.
