Use force quit and stop Disk Utility. It shouldn't do any harm to your machine unless something was wrong prior to starting the cloning. Before doing any cloning with Disk Utility you should always run a Verify and Repair if necessary. Both CCC and SuperDuper will check the validity of the hard drive prior to cloning. Using Disk Utility to clone is not a good idea since it does not clone the recovery partition if you had one. Carbon Copy Cloner is the only cloning software I trust.
