I'm making a new clone of my system drive using "Backup All Files" with Smart Update (not that it really matters) and seeing the following stats:

329.13 GB evaluated
281.54 GB already up to date
22.73 GB copied

That leaves 24.86 GB unaccounted for. That's a lot of stuff. What could it be? Where could I learn what it might be?

Thanks!!

The scripts themselves are quite detailed and show exactly what is and isn't copied.

It's not unusual to have quite a bit not copied, however. Just the sleep image itself is as large as the memory in the device. Add swap files, temporary files, "MobileBackups", the Spotlight index and you've got a pretty substantial collection of files.
