Ok, thanks

Are you using the defaults settings? (Comparison method, file filter and so on)
Any details is useful to reproduce the bug

After further investigation isn't clear if this is a bug or the behaviour is correct.

If you are using the following methods and the issue occurs then there is a bug (not reproducible here)

Compare file timestamps
Compare file timestamps and sizes
Compare file timestamp, size and content

If you are using the following methods then the files are not copied (so they remain 'red')

Compare filename only
Compare file content ignoring line ending differences
Compare file content only
Compare file sizes

This occurs because the timestamp is ignored

Which comparison method are you using?

may you tell us the file system used by disks?
We found a bug when the source is APFS and the destination is MacOS extended
