Ankiweb - option to 'only add new media' when updating shared deck

I maintain a large vocabulary deck that has almost 7k cards with an audio file for each word. Every time I update I’m forced to reupload all the media. It would increase efficiency and be less resource intensive if there was an option to only upload new media. Additionally, this may increase the frequency other media heavy decks receive updates.

The sync process will not send files with the same name and content.

Oh. Is there anyway to speed up the process?

When I sync my own copy of the deck with ankiweb it’s very fast. However when I update the shared deck page it takes 10-20 minutes. I update the the shared deck regularly so it’s not like there is a huge amount of new material added that would justify such an increase in time.

Thanks for getting back to me.

Sorry, I misunderstood you. I’m afraid in the current architecture deck sharing needs to start from scratch each time, so it will take the same amount of time each time.

No worries, I appreciate you taking the time to let me know. If the back-end ever changes please keep it in mind.
