Does the disc image have to be the size of the disc (including the unused space)?

I'm backing up two drives to an external firewire. In order to get both to backup, I make a disc image of "disc1" and copy it to "disc2". I then update "disc2" to the external drive using SuperDuper.

The disc image on "disc2" is taking up a considerable amount of space. Is there a more elegant way to approach this?

The best way to do this is to partition the external FireWire into two -- one for each source drive...
