OK! Thanks for the system profiler report. A few things:

- First, I don't think disk utility handles erasing Sparse Images properly, and that's where you're getting stuck. You should use "Smart Update" when writing to a Sparse Image. (That's the only real way to get an 'incremental' effect in any case.)

Looking at your system logs, SuperDuper! never really copied anything because disk utility never returned from erasing the image... or disk arbitration never returned from refreshing.

- Second, you've got NAV in there. I strongly recommend turning OFF auto-protect when you're using SD. NAV's kernel extension can't really handle scanning hundreds of thousands of files well... it'll often end up kernel panicing!

Hope that helps.
