Carbon Copy Cloner hanging

I've been using Carbon Copy Cloner 2.3 with psync and my external HD. I've had the thing hang on me a bunch of times and I don't know why. It's really a pain because I have to hard reboot my drive and computer to get them working again. I can tell it's hung because Activity Monitor does not show any HD activity and then light on the drive stays red as if it's constantly reading. I've left it for 20 minutes like this with no luck. It's usually hangs when copying Applications or Users.

Any help?

I've experienced those same (intermittent) stalling problems with CCC, Retrospect, SilverKeeper, and Tri-BACKUP. I now use SuperDuper, and have had no problems whatsoever.

I'm still a big fan of CCC, and recommend it, yet I have no idea what causes those stalling problems. Thankfully, SuperDuper has lived up to it's name. Also, I should mention that I can't recall DejaVu stalling while doing back-ups.
