Hi,
I backed up to a network drive and now I want to move the sparse image to a firewire drive.

When I go into the network drive via the finder I do not see the file. However, I see it when I look for it via Disk Utility.

Any suggestions for how I can move the file if I can't do it via the finder?

I don't know why you wouldn't see it in the Finder, actually: that seems weird. Have you tried ejecting the network drive and re-connecting it?

I'll try that when I get home. Isn't a sparse image invisible normally?

Nope. It's a normal file, fully visible.
