I have read in the Apple Time Machine support forum that Mac OS 10.6.3 and up changes the Time Machine behaviour to always maximize the size of a sparse bundle when it starts up a backup.
If this is true, it would ruin the strategies of Time Tame and BackupMyfruit which place the Time Machine backup on a sparse bundle that is small enough to fit in the truly available Drobo space.
So can anybody who is running Mac OS 10.6.3 or 10.6.4 and Time Machine on a Drobo please check to see whether your sparse bundle has maxed out to the theoretical limit of the Drobo or the size of the sparse bundle that you originally set?
Can people who have had a problem please respond, as well as those who haven’t had a problem?
Thanks, in advance, for your help.
