Shrink a .sparseimage?

I have SuperDuper! update a .sparseimage on a FireWire drive but I noticed the image only grows larger, it never gets smaller... If I get info on my MacBook Pro drive, it only shows 40 gigs used but the backup .sparseimage is 60 gigs. At one point I DID have 60 gigs on the MacBook Pro drive but I since have deleted a lot...

I know I could create a brand new .sparseimage and it will be 40 gigs but that is incredibly time consuming. I just wonder if there's something that I don't know about that could make the current .sparseimage shrink?
