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.

Take Control News: Free Copy of Thanksgiving Ebook!

Send Article to a Friend

The days in November are flipping by ever more quickly, with the Thanksgiving holiday on 27-Nov-08 fast approaching in the United States. Although we will be hard at work publishing TidBITS and Take Control ebooks for the remaining weeks, we're not worried by the extra effort necessary to prepare a full-fledged Thanksgiving dinner for my extended family, thanks to the schedules, shopping lists, and recipes in Joe Kissell's "Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner," which we first published in 2006 and tweaked slightly last year.

Needless to say, the topic hasn't changed at all, so the book is still entirely relevant. Although it's one of our best in terms of clarity and utility, we've so far had trouble marketing what is essentially a holiday cookbook. We knew it was a risk when we started, but we're still disappointed that the book hasn't been able to help more people.

So, to help reduce cooking stress and increase the tastiness of Thanksgiving dinner everywhere, we're giving away "Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner" from now through Thanksgiving Day. Just purchase any other Take Control ebook and you can get the $10 "Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner" for free. Use this link to load the necessary coupon code and start shopping at our alphabetized catalog page.
