I used superduper to backup my hdd before i reformatted and partitioned for a dual boot with ubuntu. I've reinstalled osx and got ubuntu up and running...but when i move the sparseimage back over to my mac drive and try to mount it the image gets resized to 1008mb even though its 11gb. I know i read that it was a 10.4 problem...but i'm running 10.4.10 and still having this problem. any ideas? the only boot disc i have too is a 10.4 one. I downloaded boot disc utilities 1.03 but can't get that to boot either.


anyways, any ideas would really help. thanks guys.

Where are you mounting the image from? Your OSX install?

I've tried from my osx 10.4.10 install and from my osx 10.4 install disc. Each time I've tried I've copied a new version of the sparseimage onto the drive.

Did you make a copy of the image or something? Because once you've opened it, and it's been truncated, game over...

yeah...i originally backed it up on a network drive. Once it was on the network drive i created a duplicate of it. and even then I don't try to open the one on the network drive...i copy it over to the computer that i'm working on and open it from there

If it's truncating like that it certainly seems pretty damaged...
