Slow incremental cloning

I back up two drives to partitions on an external drive.

One of the drives to be backed up has around 50GB of MP3s and the incremental backups of that take a matter of seconds, as it whizzes through, finding little new to backup.

But the other drive to be backed up, containing 35GB of the System, User files (in fact, everything except music) takes rather longer - every time I do an incremental backup Super Duper sits there for 6-10 minutes doing nothing. Where the filepaths appear later it just says "Cloning [Drivename] to [Drivename2]".

Is this normal? Is it just because of the much larger number of files? Thanks.
