Data Corrupt in Sparseimage

I just made a backup of a users OS 10.5.2 drive (sparseimage) and compared the original and the image - they were very close with the image being a couple GB less (this is common). Everything went smoothly, no errors. We erased the users drive and reimaged it with a new disk image, then copied the image back to the users desktop so they have access to their old files.

But when the user tries to open most of the files, the are damaged and will not open. I have tried Excel files, .jpg files, .ai files, word files, etc - and all give various error messages stating that the files are corrupt/damaged. Copy a file to another computer and it still does not open - still says damaged.

The odd thing is that the file sizes seem valid - they seem to be the correct size and take an appropriate amount of time to copy, and even have the correct icon.

The OS runs, the applications launch - but most of the data is corrupt/damaged.

I am going to try to reimage a spare Mac with this image to see if the data can be recovered this way. Any ideas?
