Yes, I did get an error, the text below is from the log:

| 03:40:30 PM | Info | ...ACTION: Mounting Donny's_G4_BkUp
| 03:40:30 PM | Info | ......COMMAND => Preparing Donny's_G4_BkUp
| 03:40:31 PM | Info | hdiutil: create failed - No such file or directory
| 03:40:31 PM | Error | ****FAILED****: result=256 errno=0 (Unknown error: 0)

If I am actually logged into my root account, backing up to the sparseimage works fine. It's just, when no is logged in the scheduled SD script doesn't work. I have even tried creating a shell script to run right before the scheduled SD script that is supposed to mount the designated sparse image, but, for some reason, the shell script won't work either, (unless I'm logged in as root, then it will work fine). I put the shell script in my top level Library:StartupItems folder, which is where I believe it's supposed to go. Oh well, any ideas?

Now, I do have to ask, why shouldn't I use sparse images? It is one of the save to options.
