Unhappy I only want to copy 2 folders

I've just bought SuperDuper (as I said I would about 2 yrs ago, when it was a better fit for me .
I just want to copy 2 folders and the files and sub-folders.
I've created a script that just says to copy the 2 folders (see attached script at bottom).
However SuperDuper scans all the files on my HD and is copying them all across - the taget is only 20GB so there is no room.

What am I doing wrong?
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">
<string>Backup MLDX Log and Scout files from (source) to (target).</string>
<string>Users/david/Documents/CQ CQ CQ/MacLoggerDX Logs</string>
<string>Users/david/Documents/Scouts/2nd Folder</string>
<key>Include Directives</key>

Send a message via AIM to dnanian
Include "Exclude all files" in the include tab, and it won't coy everything (by default, everything is copied).

Thanks, I thought it might be something like that, but wasn't sure how.

So my only issue with this is that it still evaluates all the files on the disk (it's a 1TB disk, thank heavens its not full).

I would be better imho if it only evaluated the files within the folders I told it to copy and not every file.

You may want SyncTwoFolders. I've not used it but do have it "just in case." Back in the days before I switched to SD! I was a big Synk fan and it did folder to folder very well and easily. Usually just Finder copying will suffice but there are times when something way deep inside may have a screwy permissions issue. Synk could handle those. I am unsure if SyncTwoFolders does.
