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.

And Now, NetBITS!

Send Article to a Friend

And Now, NetBITS! Watch your email this coming Friday for a sample issue of our neat new publication, NetBITS. Complete details will be forthcoming both in the first issue of NetBITS and the next issue of TidBITS (and the password protection will come off the Web site Thursday night; NetBITS uses a .net top-level domain). Suffice to say for now that TidBITS readers will receive only the first two issues of NetBITS automatically and after that you'll have to subscribe (for free, of course) to receive more. You can subscribe to the text version by sending email to <netbits-on@netbits.net> and to the HTML version (make sure your email program can interpret HTML mail!) by sending a message to <netbits-html-on@netbits.net>. If you're a member of the press and would like a sneak preview, drop me a note and I'll send some additional information. More soon! [ACE]
