I am attempting to use SuperDuper to create a bootable backup of my PowerBook G4. The external hard disk I am using (FreeAgent) did not come with Firewire, so I am using a USB. It is going unbearably slow (<2 MB/s), and seems to be copying something, despite the fact that under the Activity Monitor, the Process "SDCopy" is said to NOT be responding?!

Is this likely to require a firewire or could there be another issue?

Thanks,

Nicole

The "not responding" bit in Activity Monitor doesn't really tell you anything useful. When SD is copying a big file, you can get that. But, if it ended up failing, the log -- combined with the Troubleshooting section of the User's Guide -- can help you determine why.
