Use SD to restore HD and gain space?


Evaluating SD and love it. But have a question that someone might be able to answer. When I run SD, it evaluated 699,923 files, but only copied 544,731 files. When I get info on the MacBook Pro disk, it shows 104,142,577,664 bytes used, but the backup only shows 96,615,665,664 bytes used.

If I reboot on the external drive (the SD backup) and then use SD to "backup" the backup to the main drive, will I end up more free space on my drive? It appears that the backup is almost 8 gigs smaller than the boot drive. Sure would be nice to get that back. Or would a backup/restore enhance the performance of the computer's boot drive?



(I can send the log file from the backup if that helps.)
