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.

DealBITS Drawing: A Stuffed Dog and Fetch 5.0 -- Congratulations to Glenn Blauvelt of cs.colorado.edu, whose entry was chosen randomly from 720 entries in last week's DealBITS drawing and who received a plush Fetch toy, along with a license for Fetch 5.0, worth $25. Even if you didn't win, you can still save 20 percent on Fetch 5.0 through 31-Oct-05 by using coupon code TIDBITS05 when ordering from within the Fetch application (choose Purchase from the Fetch application menu). This offer is open to all TidBITS readers (although those who entered the drawing received a 30 percent-off coupon). Keep an eye out for future DealBITS drawings! [ACE]
