10.5: Fix Time Machine sparse images with Disk Utility
Authored by: carmst on Jun 05, '08 10:46:05AM

Didn't work for me in 10.5.2! My time machine image corrupted a few times running 10.5.2, usually due to the mac going to sleep during the backup, and it required fsck_hfs with the -r switch (catalog btree rebuild) to repair successfully each time. Disk Utility always failed to repair the image. I assume that's the change in 10.5.3, Disk Utility now runs fsck_hfs with -r.

My sparse bundle hasn't corrupted either since the update 10.5.3, so maybe that's fixed too!
