One guess: you haven't configured Samba to map the Windows permission bits to Unix permission bits. So the backup can't use the archive bits to include only files that have changed.

These are settings in the smb.conf file. I don't recall the exact ones, but the Samba documentation has information on it. Check either samba.org or the local documentation, and SWAT probably has a convenient link to it.
