Why is backing up so slow for a brand new image?

I tried backing up a drive yesterday and it was going slow as molasses. After 6 hours it was still working. I had to cancel the backup because I had some other work to do.

Any ideas why this was taking so long? Its a 120GB drive to a Sparse Image (New Image). Is there a speed difference between "Smart Update" and Erase?, then Copy files option to a new image?
