    Unable to search a ".sparsebundle" file using "File Size" option
    I have all my “.sparsebundle” files opened in “Lion.” When I use “Find” and search “This Mac” using the option “File Size,” it will not search the “.sparsebundle” files. If I try any other option like “Name” it will search the entire HDD without a problem. Also, it did not work when I selected one of my “.sparsebundle” files and searched it using the option “File Size.” Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Use the Time Machine app to access your backups and search from within there. They aren't designed to be accessed directly

    Thanks for responding. I tried your suggestion but to no avail. Every type of search worked in Time Machine except "File Size." Maybe the OS does not allow this type of search within “.sparsebundle” files.
