Typically any items stored within the ''/tmp/'' directory will be removed once the system has been a rebooted. The example above generates the ''5gig_test.sparsebundle'' image within the ''/tmp/'' directory. This is simply an example command, it is recommended that you specify a different path when you create a backup disk image or move it once it out of the the temporary directory once it has been generated.+  * **Note :** When creating a disk image for backup or important information storage it is advisable to store the image somewhere within the filesystem which will persist after a restart of the system. Typically any items stored within the ''/tmp/'' directory will be removed once the system has been a rebooted. In some cases files within the ''/tmp/'' directory could be removed even between reboots. The example above generates the ''5gig_test.sparsebundle'' image within the ''/tmp/'' directory.
