I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

File Too Large: You can't create a huge .DMG on a FAT Drive. Duh

It's not an error, you just need to use an OS X formatted drive when you're making a huge disk image (DMG). FAT (maybe FAT32, can't recall) will throw you an error.

Just get or reformat your drive you are making the DMG on to OS X format. You will lose that data on the drive of course, so make sure you don't need it for anything.

I have a rather pesky and somewhat ugly drive issue going on at the moment, yay. I'm making a disk image of the drive (I have a Time Machine backup too) before I restore from it.
