SparseImage grows for no understood reason ...


Last night before going to sleep I started the duplication of my iMacG5 to a sparse image located on my iMacIntel.

This morning the duplication was not completed and the sparse image had grown to 145GB while the source is only 22GB. I must also say that before launching the duplication yesteraday the sparse image was compressed the it's minimum size using this script:

do shell script "hdiutil compact " & quoted form of filesPath

What could have been wrong ? Thanks in advance.

Robert Lespérance

P.S. While the compression is running how can I monitor by script if the sparse image file is still busy being compressed ?
