Hello forum members,
I bought DropDMG some time ago, but it’s only recently that I’ve started to use it in earnest. I’m using it to make an encrypted image of my home folder to burn to a DVD as a “last resort” backup. I don’t want certain folders backed up (Movies, Music, Pictures) as they are in effect backed up on my iPod, so I drag the remaining folders to DropDMG and end up with one DMG for each folder that I dragged, which is sensible behaviour, but not what I want.
To work around this, I first copy the folders I want to another folder, and then drag that to DropDMG which works fine. The trouble is, it takes much longer and takes up much more space while the operation is carried out. I’ve tried creating a new folder with symbolic links to the folders I want to image, and then dragging that to DropDMG, but that doesn’t work.
There must be a better way, and I’m sure I must be missing something obvious. Any ideas?
Thanks in anticipation for any help,
