10.4: Create DMGs in Disk Utility via drag and drop
Authored by: osxpounder on Apr 12, '06 04:21:00PM

dogboy, thanks for pointing out that Spotlight tip. I keep lots of icons, too, as well as files with really long names that often include the name of the app I made 'em with [because I share them with others or put them on other computers]. I'm gonna stash the icons in a dmg from now on.

Also thanks to the original poster. I've been making dmg files the long way.

Here's my dmg tip: use an encrypted dmg to keep printed PDFs of any online receipts, bill payments, sensitive emails, text files with passwds ... anything you want to protect, yet have ready access to, on your Mac. When I'm about to pay bills online, I double-click my encrypted dmg, type in the password, and pay bills, printing the confirmation pages to PDF on that dmg. When I'm done, I eject the dmg [it's a .sparseimage, so it grows as I add files to it]. If I need to back up that info to put in the safe deposit box at the bank [in case there's a house fire or the Mac gets burgled], it's just one file to burn to CD.
