Migrating a TFS TFVC based team project to a Git team project retaining as much source and work item history as possible took 3 days. Is there a way to cut the time?

Hello!

I was able to migrate a TFS TFVC based team project to a Git team project in VS 2013 retaining as much source and work item history as possible (main branch) using the git-tf clone command with the "--deep" option. The process took 3 full days (72 hours). This is not a huge project (about 546 MB). Is there a way to make the process faster.

Number of cloned changesets = 3700
Number of Files = 59888
Number of Folder = 1026

Thanks,
