the extra files

greetings. i just completed my first complete backup, and have a few questions...

i have 503,494 files - about 92 GB - on my source drive. SD copied 495,971 of those in about 1:02:24. i made a clone of my G5s internal HD to an external OWC firewire 800 drive (which i zeroed and partitioned first). the drive specs say that my transfer rate should be: FireWire 800 - 800Mbps (or 100MB/sec), so why was i topping out at 27MB/s?

also, what about those other several thousand files? why did SD deem them unnecessary to copy, and won't i need them if i need to restore from the clone?

when SD was done (all check marks complete) the drives were obviously still working heavily for about 10 minutes. then i noticed that spotlight is indexing. is it indexing the clone? is this necessary? it's been over 20 minutes now and it says it's only 3% complete...

i've got a few gigs of archived files on another FW drive. would i use SD to copy those to the new drive, or just drag them over?

thanks for your help - this is a great product!
