What are DMG files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a DMG file or are you simply curious about its contents? We're here to explain the properties of these files and provide you with software that can open or handle your DMG files.

What is a DMG file?

A .DMG file is a Macintosh Disk image file.

A DMG file contains an exact copy (image) of a hard drive and can be treated as such by the Macintosh OS X operating system. These files can be created with Disk Copy, burned to a CD, or even mounted as a normal volume on Macintosh computers.

Some .dmg files may be encrypted in addition to being compressed, for added file security. These files are often used by software installers that download applications from the Internet to a user's computer.

Software on non-Macintosh systems can extract the content from these files as well.
