Is that a progress bar?

When doing SuperDuper! backups, I always thought that the small rectangle to the right of the "copy files" section was a progress bar. My SD copies fine but the progress bar, if that is what it is, does not advance as the backup does. Anyone know anything about this?
Thanks.

I have some disks that have a nearly empty progress bar the whole way through, and others that jump to nearly full immediately and stick there until done. I just figure it has to with either large chunks of ignored files, or strange file number/size distributions.

Sadly, I don't know that there's a decent way to represent both %done of files and space in a single progress bar, and two would be confusing for other reasons.

We're actually showing the progress through the full content of the drive, in blocks, in the bar. Counts and the like are in the text.

General recommendation is to stop watching the pot boil and go get a nice hot beverage while making copies.
