Are there any options for the "Compare" behavior when upload / download / mirror? #10974

Currently using Cyberduck to sync my folders (>100GB) with google drive (in encrypted vaults).\
Everytime just a few files in the local folders are modified, but Cyberduck will takes so long to compute the MD5 hash of all contents of in the folders.\
\says the "Compare" function will compare the checksum if available, then the modification date.\
Are there any possibilities of customizing the options of "Compare" behavior (e.g. filesize or checksum, then the modification date, newer or older)? Or any simple way to update the copy in the cloud without hashing every bytes in the whole folders?\
Besides, a bit confused about the "Mirror / Upload / Download" behavior.\
The description says these operations will either create or replace the files. What happens if I rename, move, or delete the files?
Are there any ways that automatically identify the deleted files and remove them in the other copy accordingly? (similar to FreeFileSync).\

Unfortunately, it isn't possible to customize the "Compare" behavior.

Regarding the "Mirror/Upload/Download" behavior in general:
Cyberduck doesn't have the possibility to perform automated destructive processes which is why the description within the documentation says that these operations will either create or replace the files. If you rename, move or delete a file the old file will remain as before on the server, and in case of a file rename or move, Cyberduck will create a new file within the corresponding location.
