Arrow Apple Hot News: Mac OS X Pro Tip: Lock Your Data with Disk Images

You may have used Disk Utility to format, verify, repair, or partition disks on your Mac. But the Mac OS X Leopard utility also offers a great way to protect any sensitive or confidential data you’re sending to colleagues or clients. Encrypt a folder on your Mac as a .dmg file, and you can confidently email it or include it on an optical disc or thumb drive you overnight. Like to see how easy it is to create a .dmg in Disk Utility?

Sometimes small tips are good.

Someone was going through a basic Mac OS X demo the other day for me, and I couldn't believe it.. I had COMPLETELY forgot about the Leopard feature Spaces. Totally forgot it was even there.

I'm pretty sure that I have been using this since 10.3. Very sure that it was in 10.4.

I appreciate the tips. I may have heard of this one, but there are lots I don't know and lots that I've forgotten about.
