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.

Send Article to a Friend

FreePPP 2.5v3 Patcher -- Steve Dagley and the FreePPP Group have released a 36K patcher program that updates the FreePPP 2.5v2 extension to 2.5v3. It fixes a nasty bug that has long been lurking in the original MacPPP code. In situations of heavy load, this bug could cause FreePPP to crash or hang. If you use FreePPP 2.5v2, you should update your copy. [ACE]
