Full Scan Has Become Quick Scan

Trend Micro Antivirus+ runs a very brief scan (about 1 minute) when Full Scan is initiated instead of taking a couple of hours as it usually does. 

Reboot doesn't help.

Had reinstalled Trend Sunday, September 9, 2018. Was working "normally" since then.

I read a couple of cases indicating this short Full Scan is design intent and unchanged files do not need to be rescanned.

But why did the behavior of the program change after months and months of working differently (taking a couple of hours every day)?

And what if I want all files to be scanned anyway?

Did something recently change in MS file management?

Why does Custom Scan work more like Full Scan was working? Something is odd here.
