    Thanks for that – my MacBook Pro ran out of disk space because of my sparsefile – busy shrinking it now thanks to your info!

    This worked for me as well, very useful. Note that if you’re on a laptop that is not plugged in, you may get this ridiculously cryptic message:

    hdiutil: compact failed - Function not implemented

    Adding “-batteryallowed” to the invocation should fix that.
