Frustrated with Smart update and lack of drive space

I love Super Duper but I am frustrated with one thing. Prehaps this is a feature request or I may be missing how to set up.

I have two BU drives on my OSX server, a Western Digital and a laCie both 465.8 gig drives partitioned into three vols. The total of the three drives I am backing up is 392 so with careful sizing of partitions the data should fit. I create a nightly schedule to one drive and a weekly to the other. The first time I do a full BU everything fits, but after a couple of Smart updates the space need keeps growing (I understand why) and it errors out because of lack of HD space. Not only do I now not have a current BU but I am forced (here is the frustrating part) to go to the the scheduler, check the time and dates for that BU, kill that scheduled BU, create a new one with the correct times and dates.

Why can't I at least double click on the error log scheduled copy and tell it to erase next time rather than having to kill and reschedule the event


Better yet why won't Smart Update recognize that the destination vol is out of space and erase this time and do Smartupdate the next time?

Am I hosed, do I need to go buy another HD?

Personally I would pay triple the price for a ProDuper version that would give me this feature and help me manage in one window all of my drives and schedules.
