Aggressive Compression?

I have an external HD on which I store several SD sparsebundle backups. Two of these are "traditional" bootable backups and one is a relatively simple backup of media files stored on a different external HD. The 3rd file--the media backup--has grown to nearly 300GB (the full system, bootable backups run ~25GB each).

I've thrown `hdiutil compact /path/to/sparsebundle` at it, but that reclaimed very little space and subsequent attempts reclaim no additional space. Is there anything else I can do to get this file back to a reasonable size? I'd rather not delete and start over, but I can't think of anything else to try.
