Well -- are you running an AntiVirus program? Could it be spotlight? Does Activity Monitor show you what might be slowing things down?

I don't use my computer when I run SD!. I wouldn't want to change anything at the same time I'm trying to copy. I make sure that I quit MAIL first, too. I just put it on Smart Update and leave the room for a half hour.
