Whoops! Thanks to readers and CE Software staff members for pointing out that we published an incorrect telephone number for CE in TidBITS #221. The correct toll-free number for U.S. callers is 800/523-7638. [MHA]
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.
