Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

PC Setup 1.0.6 Yanked

Send Article to a Friend

PC Setup 1.0.6 Yanked -- Apple pulled version 1.0.6 of PC Setup from distribution last week due to "several" unspecified problems. If you're running PC Setup 1.0.6, Apple recommends to switch back to the correct version of PC Setup for your machine. If you've got a DOS Compatible 6100 system, you'll want to use PC Setup 1.0.3; for 630 and 640 DOS Compatible machines, use PC Setup 1.0.5. Watch out: these are big archives (2.6 MB and 1.3 MB respectively), and they have those funky ultra-long Apple URLs: [GD]
