So, it's either copying or deleting material at 1:57:15am, and you stopped it four minutes later.

That's not what that means. It means we have to use the replicator to copy the OS. The OS has been copied by SuperDuper with "Erase, then copy" as detailed in the blog post about this.

As indicated in the blog post, you need to use Option+Boot (or Power+Boot on Apple silicon). to boot, since the snapshot has to be created in a secure environment.

The System volume isn't encrypted (since there's no point), so that seems unlikely. I think it may just be giving bad status?

No.

"User files" is just the Home folders (/Users). The data volume is copied (and updated) using "Backup - all files" with "Smart Update" under Big Sur and later.

This is only an issue when Apple's replicator is used. I would suggest not scheduling it to erase, and do that manually - use Smart Update on a schedule.

We can hope Apple will fix this at some...
