Can't backup to a sparse image?


Using v2.5 (v84) on a dual G5 running 10.4.11.

I can backup just fine to another partition but whenever I backup to a sparse image, it backs up successfully but the image is unusable. I can't select it when I select "Disk Image" as source. It's grey-out. Same thing happens within Disk Utility. If I mount the image and then backup from that mounted image to another drive, the restore proceeds but then I'm left with an unbootable disk afterwards.

Is there a trick to backing up to a sparse image?
