Sparseimage changed to dmg somehow

Superduper schedule has been working good for months. Recently I had to upgrade the external drive to a larger capacity. I paused all the scheduled backups then copied all the backup files to the new drive, then resumed the scheduled backups.

The backups resumed okay. It was on week 4 and the first two times for week 4 after resuming, everything worked good. On the third time for week 4 at the end when it was finishing the backup said it was converting to read only. When I checked the disk it had changed the sparseimage file to a dmg file.

Is there any way to get back the old sparseimage file? Once it has been changed is there any way to reverse it or do I have to trash it and start over?

I have never seen that before. Does anyone know what happened? I didn't make any changes to the options.
