The reason I like images is because they allow me to store several on the same drive and I like having multiple backups over time. Since Disk Utility never gave me the option of backing up to a volume directly, it never occurred to me to create a sparse image and mount it for the purpose of backing up. That works just as well for my purposes: create a single large sparse image, backup to it weekly using the smart update feature, and then periodically copy the sparse image to offline media.

That's worth the price, so I'll be buying shortly
