Can I use Smart Switch to transfer only new data?

Hi. I just bought a new Samsung S22 and used Smart Switch a couple of days ago to transfer everything from my old phone to the S22. However, I kept on using my old phone for a few days (as I didn't have time to figure out how to use the new S22 yet).

Can I use Smart Switch again to just transfer the new data/photo on the old phone to the S22? Will Smart Switch recognise and only transfer the new data on my old phone since the last transfer, or will it transfer everything again? ie will my S22 suddenly have duplicates of everything from my old phone? I started using Smart Switch for a second time and it says it will take about an hour to transfer, which seems like a lot for just new data since the last transfer...?

Hello and welcome to the forum.. you can customize what you need to transfer over again when you initiate the smart switch.. you can uncheck whatever you don't need to transfer over but you shouldn't get any dupes.. I'm thinking you probably want to transfer over some messages and maybe call logs?
