Sparse image: And the point would be, what?

Admittedly I may be misunderstanding, but could somebody please disabuse me of the notion that a "Sparse Image" is usless.

Follow me:

I want to back up a 500g external portable disk onto a 1gb internal. So I create a sparse disk image on the 1gb Internal - IMPORTANT NOTE this is NOT my startup disk. I initiate the back up.

PROBLEM: while there is more than enough space on the 1GB internal disk, it would seem that even though the data is being written to this disk, the sparse image actually mounts to the startup disk. Hunhhhhh???? yes. It appeared that the disk image was actually taking up disk space on my startup drive as well as a kind of mounted volume. Does this make any sense at all???

thanks!
