Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2008 9:00 AM (in response to random1destiny)that's normal behavior. sparse bundles don't shrink automatically when you take stuff out (it would be nice if they did though). you have to compact them. unmount the sparse bundle and run the following command in terminal
hdiutil compact path/to/sparsebundle
put the unix path to the sparse bundle in the above.
P.S. filevault compacts the sparse bundle with user's home directory automatically when that user logs out.
