I don't know if it makes that much of a difference, but it is recommended to quit all other apps before running SD...but sometimes I space out and leave the ones which are login items open, so it would be great to have a setting to automatically quit all other apps before running the backup (akin to repairing the permissions).

Also I still get these weird negative numbers sometimes during the backup, but it doesn't seem to do any harm.

It's difficult to quit all other apps, actually, because they often need saving, you might quit things that you don't want to, etc... so we leave this to the user's good judgement.

We're aware of the very rare negative numbers during copy, but still haven't found a reproducible case. Thanks for letting me know it still happens, though!
