10.6: Create networkable and copyable Time Machine backups
Authored by: patmuk on Oct 19, '09 03:58:11AM

Not directly intended by this tip - but is it somehow possible under 10.6 to use a sparse bundle on the same harddisk (or another partition) with time machine?
Currently I have a similar setup: I have two partitions, the first one serving as the system partition and the second one for the time machine backup and unimportant files like my downloads and my music.
The second partition gets backed up via SuperDuper! to an external drive at work.
The main reason for this back up is to have the ability to "go back in time" at any moment. A drawback is, that I have to manually delete old backups in order to reclaim space on my second partition.
So, any chance to use a local sparse bundle disk instead?
