Ok well ive been having quite a hard time trying to get Super duper working properly. I have two external hard drives, I want super duper to copy one of them to the other. They are both the exact same size. I keep getting errors because its saying the the backup drive is running out of space. Ive looked into it and found out that SuperDuper was deleting old files...but they weren't deleting they were being placed in an invisible .trashes folder... How can I get this working? I know very little about macs and this whole .trashes business..Thank you!

We don't delete to the trash like that, John; .Trashes is where OSX itself puts files you delete in Finder.

Try emptying your trash in Finder.
