Hello Folks My external HD crashed, with my complete iTunes library on it I needed CPR. Then I thought: no problems, I have my trusty backup. So I whipped out my other HD with a 30Go .sparseimage on it. I use CCC to do my incremental backups of my library, un-encrypted (i.e. I do not encrypt it). I mount it... and what do I get? The right files, except 300Mb instead of 30Gb! I looked everywhere, tried everything, and implored every deity, and I am still stumped. I tried to restore via Disk Utility, with the same result: a 300 Mb file... Help me save my life's listening pleasure and I will be your friend forever. Here's some info/weirdness that might help: - I'm on OS X 10.4 Tiger - I verified the disk image with Disk Utility - all OK - weird?: I copied the image (the whole 30Gb of it) on a fresh HD, and mounted it. The root folder on the mounted image resides in /private/temp/ccc_dmg_mount.e7h4Mt. Is that normal? - weird?: If I look at the image info (via apple-I or Disk Utility) it gives me a total capacity of 268 GB, which is the size of the HD it resides on! Is that normal?
