    Procedure to delete .dmg files from MacBook?

    There are many files which are in an unsupported format in the disc utility folder of my macbook. When I have checked the properties of the files, they are saved in the .dmg format. I don't know what for they, and when I try to delete them there is a message like " You do not have an access to deleted the files ". How to delete all such kind of files from device and make my disk free for better performance?

    Hello my dear Friend ...


    DMG files are DISK IMAGES


    You can Delete them using the TRASH

    So there you must Right click it


    Click on the "" Put Back ""


    Eject this DMG file from selecting the among them


    On the Finder window ... in the Device Heading .. Click the EJECT button just right it to the NAME

    Delete it Again... so you can Find this in the TRASH


    There you can Empty the TRASH


    That is it

    This way you can easily DELETE THE .DMG files



    VERY GOOD LUCK

    Hello Friend

    Actually the .dmg File is a discard able disk.

    First of all you have to load it up.

    And then you can access the files on it.

    Once you will complete the load it all up just delete it.

    One advantage of this files that one is the files themselves are copied to the computer.
