I know this is an old thread, but I had the exact same problem. Partitioned drive (Backup and Storage); I could add the Storage partition to the privacy pane perfectly, but the SD! Backup partition wouldn't work. I had to erase that partition with Disk Utility to make it work.

Just wanted to let you know. Maybe it's a SD! bug that can be fixed in the future or something :)

The suggested fix still works
I can confirm, that the suggested fix still works: You can add your backup volume to the Spotlight privacy pane immediately after formatting the disk with Diskutil (i.e. before SuperDuper is ran for the first time for this volume).

I don't know whether adding the backup volume later, i.e. after some backups have been made with SuperDuper, works now. But since there is such an easy workaround I don't consider this an important problem. You can easily reformat the volume later, add the volume to Spotlight privacy and make a backup after that.
