    Could be a lot of reasons actually... corrupt files, bad sectors on the disk, etc.

    I prefer Carbon Copy Cloner, and you might go to VersionTracker to get it and see if you have any better luck

    Run repair on your disk, more than likely you have some bad sectors, files, etc. SuperDuper and Carbon Copy Cloner both will fail if there are disk errors.

    Regards.
