SD and Safe Mode

I'm trying to clone my MacBook Pro's internal hard drive to a Firewire 800 drive, but running into a problem where copying speed drops to below a dismal 2MB/s, even when copying small files. The log shows no problems, nor does testing of either hard drive, so I'm thinking of booting into safe mode, and running the backup that way. While I understand that in normal use, it should not be necessary to run in safe mode to complete the process, is there any reason not to do so? In other words, will a SD clone performed using safe mode be in any way different from one performed normally?
