It may be too late for SuperDuper, seeing that it's a backup program, and not a recovery tool.

I recommend you backup the important files using Finder copy, do a fresh OS X install making sure to deep format the drive (it will take a while).

Once you're back on a healthy system, using SuperDuper regularly will make it much faster coming back online again, of course.

Also, my drive has been very full lately and am working on clearing space by archiving to a network drive, hopefully using superduper. Thanks for your help.
