Manual creation of sparse image worked

Hi Dave,
I tried your suggestion and I was able to create a sparse image backup.

The only trick was that you have to use Disk Copy on OS X 10.2 and you have to set Disk Copy to expert-mode to get to choose the sparse image format. Fortunately we were able to find the method of doing that described on a web site.

Just in case someone else reading the thread needs to do this, you set DiskCopy to expert mode in OS X 10.2 using the Terminal command:

defaults write expert-mode 1

You can exit from expert-mode (if you wish) using the command:

defaults delete expert-mode

Thanks again for you help.
