I recently have a large amount of data I needed to upload into Google Drive. I decided to use Disk Utility to create a container for it (otherwise Google Drive would have to create many files and directories taking up a huge amount of the time).
I noticed that Disk Utility creates a read-only DMG file by first creating a sparseimage, then converting it to a DMG file.
As a result, to cut down on time, I am wondering if creating sparseimages of my files, then uploading to Google Drive is better than putting it into a DMG file. My two main concerns are:
1) I read somewhere that sparseimages seem to have a greater than of being corrupt on Google Drive or cloud services?
2) Is there any real difference between the two beyond write/read-only capabilities?
