Backup dilemma

I would like to use SuperDuper! to backup "only" my /Documents, /Pictures, and /Music folders to an external drive that currently is being used for only Time Machine, and that's only about 30GB of storage (the drive is 320GB).

I DO NOT want to partition this drive, but would just like to add these folders and keep the backups synched with the folders on my Mac. The problem I'm encountering is when I setup SuperDuper! to do this, the first backup it wants to erase the entire drive...which would also erase my Time Machine backup.

The drive is formatted in Mac OS Extended (Journaled), which is what SuperDuper! wants to why does SuperDuper! need to erase the entire drive just to do this backup? Other synchronizing backup software doesn't do this...but I've already paid for SuperDuper! so I don't want to change. Thanks.
