SD! will not back up to the internal if it can't find the external: there are situations where if the external fails during the copy we'll end up copying to a directory in /Volumes. He can use Finder's "Go To Folder" command to look.

But -- 6GB isn't necessarily an unreasonable amount of difference, especially if he hasn't restarted his Mac for a while... VM Swap files, sleep images, temporary files, spotlight index -- all can be quite large.
