Sparse Disk Images

I want to have a place to keep files secure that I can open, add and delete items, and gradually grow in size as I accumulate new files. Does DropDMG support the creation of sparse disk images? For example, could I set up a configuration that made a sparse disk image, encrypted, with a maximum size of 650 MB, and initial contents whatever I drag onto DropDMG?

Of course I can do this in Disk Utility, but if I do a number of these it would be nice to have the process automated. Am I missing something?


Sorry, DropDMG currently doesn’t support the creation of sparse disk images. I plan to add that feature in a future version.

DropDMG 3.0 adds support for creating sparse disk images and sparse bundle disk images.
