Im trying to back up my hard drive by creating a copy of it as a .dmg file (good compression rate). I tried to use disk utility to do this, but it says that the resource is being used (duh :S). Is there any way to do this ? I dont seem to be able to access anything that isnt a drive from disk utility. Should I backup using .tar and .zip ?

thanks
