Backup FileVault Query???

Again, thank you for such an awesome piece of software. Both the code, and your superb support of it, are much appreciated!

Dumb question for you- what should I do when backing up a sparse image disk? With FileVault switched on on my Powerbook, when I use SuperDuper to back up the harddrive of my Powerbook to an external disk I am left with a SparseImage folder of my account on my backup drive that is of size 0K. If my Powerbook were lost/stolen etc, how would I get to the data on my backup disk? It's probably an obvious question, but since I don't understand what sparse images are I'm not sure how I would go about recovering potentially lost data.

Again, thank you!
