BTW: While doing my backup yesterday I noticed, that the error *seems* to show only (sporadically) when accessing my big 480GB-SFS/2-partition.

My guess:

Some semi-random locations on your HD are dying, with lots of errors. When the HD sees these locations it has to stop what it is doing & perform a lot of error correction. So you get the data, it just takes a long time, and these are the freezes you get.

These semi-random locations are more likely to be found in your big partition, precisely because it is so big; imagine throwing a dart at stamp next to a postcard - you are more likely to hit the (bigger) postcard! These locations may also be biased to one part of your HD, which happens to be used by your big partition. So no need to worry about it being specific to SFS!
