I am running OS X Lion/10.7.4 and have set up a network disk hosted on an Ubuntu server using directions I found online. Time Machine recognizes the disk and backs up to it. However it backs up as sparsebundle "bands" files. I would like to be able to read the backed-up files from the Ubuntu server.
Is there any way to tell Time Machine to back up to regular files instead of using sparsebundle/bands files?
