Another method of quick and easy manual backup
Authored by: szabesz on Jul 13, '06 03:30:51AM

But can you limit the growth of a "sparse disk image"? As far as I know you cannot, it can grow until your HD is full. So a fixed size DMG ensures that you can instantly back up whenever you feel the need to...

Back up time is not big deal if you burn that DVD-R (or DVD-RW) disc while you are under the shower or during having your dinner :)

Yes, a sparse image will only grow to the maximum size you give it when you create it, it is not infinitely expandable.
