Question Automated Sparse Image Shrinking?


Is there a way to shrink my sparse image file automatically every time after updating it with SuperDuper?
At the moment, after using SD! I always shrink it manually with the "hdiutil compact " command in the Terminal.

Could I make a script and include it in the backup/updating process of SD?
And how would this script have to look like?

Or will this soon be an easy-to-use checkbox option included in SD? (Still hoping for it!) (If so, I would also appreciate an additional option to shrink it only every xx-th backup. )

Thanks for your answers!
