As a mac user, I'm fairly new but I now find myself using disk images a lot (dmgs and sparseimages/bundles) to organise my files. Mostly encrypted images to hold my private stuff and other images that hold work files and "mission critical" files.
Now that I've got a new drive, I was trying to set up Time Machine. And I noticed that while it does indeed backup the image file itself (since these are stored on my home dir and it's not excluded), it doesn't backup the mount point itself (ie, /Volumes/MyImageDrive).
Is there no way to treat files in "Virtual drives" like any other files on HDD? Can I not use the Time machine cool/easy restore thing with files store on these drives?
Obviously, I can always restore the whole image. But I imagine trying to restore a few instances of a 30GB image just because I'm not quite sure where the change happened is going to be quite a pain.
