Sparse Images under Jaguar

A quick note for Jaguar users like me:

Creating sparse images for us is not so easy, since it's not available in Disk Copy, but we can do it from the command line, like this:

hdiutil create system_backup -size 1g -type SPARSE -fs HFS+ -volname "System Backup"

This creates a 1 GB sparse image in whatever directory you happen to be in at the time. The image file would be called system_backup while the mounted volume would be called System Backup.
