I want to do some calculations using the ALGO = All, when I did scf, I obtained the magnetic moment of the Cu = 0.672, however, when I performed the band structure calculations, I got the magnetic moment of the same Cu is only 0.032! Could you give me some advices?

Attached below is the INCAR for scf:

NELMIN = 8 : minimal number of SCF iterations
NELMDL = -6 : number of non-SCF iterations
EDIFF = 1E-6 : criterion for SCF convergence
ISMEAR = 0 : Methfessel-Paxton smearing
SIGMA = 0.05 : sigma for smearing

VOSKOWN = 1
# IALGO = 48
ALGO = All
ISPIN = 2

LORBIT = 11
AMIX = 0.005

# LCHARG = .FALSE.
