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.

SuperMac and Manager7

Send Article to a Friend

A friend writes to tell us that SuperMac has arranged with Casa Blanca Works to release a special subset of their Drive7 software which only works on SuperMac hard drives, including the LaserFrame rewritable optical drive. The package is called Manager7 and users of SuperMac drives can get it for free.

Manager7 updates most SuperMac hard drives and LaserFrame optical drives and formats almost all SuperMac hard drives, including DataFrames. The main drive not supported is the 20 MB Iomega Bernoulli portion of the DataFrame 60+B drive (you'll have to talk to Iomega if you've got one of those). Manager7 supposedly completely solves all the System 7 and Quadra problems found in Manager 4.2.

You can download Manager7 from CompuServe, America Online, GEnie, AppleLink, and SuperMac's BBS, and for a $10 disk and shipping charge Casa Blanca Works or DriveSavers will ship it to you. In addition, owners of SuperMac drives can purchase the full package, Drive7 2.3, for half price, or $39.97, until 01-Feb-93.
