Here is the support page for Time Capsules. If you felt like doing any reading up.
http://www.apple.com/support/airport/timecapsule/

Yeah I can see myself evantually getting one of those capsules. Maybe by the end of the year or a birthday present for myself in october smile.gif

BTW guys I am organizing photos via iphoto and MY GOSH, the face recognition is so terrible redface.gif

Make sure you have a backup in the meantime. Use an external hard drive and configure it with Time Machine. Works well. that or use Synchronize Pro.

I don't even use that feature. Nice in theory but soooo much to keep track of. smile.gif I like the events splitting but that is about it.

Also what do you mean 'eject'? I've been hearing this term a lot on Mac.

Exactly - think of the DMG like an ISO - it's an image of a disk. You open the DMG, and it's as if you inserted a disk drive. Applications are often shipped in DMGs, and to "install," you mount the DMG, drag the app to wherever you want it (usually /Applications), then unmount the disk image and delete it.

The reason that you were not able to delete the DMG is most likely because you ran the app from the image. Therefore, you can't delete the image while the program is running.

Thats one of my favorite parts of OS X is how it handles DMGs. Its super useful when you combine Disk Utility and bootable DMGs makes making bootable usb easy (ie Mavericks).

Want an encrypted desktop folder? Just make an encrypted sparsebundle, and edit your /etc/fstab (via "vifs" command) and have it mount to your ~/Desktop. You'll have to open the image and provide the password to access your desktop, but that's the point of encryption biggrin.gif

And of course you could do the same with your Documents folder and anything else.

Incremental backups work beautifully, as well, since everything is stored as bands (encrypted, 8MB (2^23 bytes) files.) As things are changed or added, it just updates or adds bands to the .sparsebundle package, meaning if you modify the bundle, it won't copy over a new 1GB+ image.
