I've created the disc image on my desktop as instructed and I have a word document I want to protect but I cannot seem to copy the file into the disc image folder.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    Try double clicking on the dmg, once open, drag the file to it then close or unmount the dmg to protect it.

     

    It's an encrypted dmg right, & the Password is not stored in the Keychain?

    Do you have a finder widow open to the mounted dmg, & is that where you're dragging the word doc to?

     

    Is the DMG maybe read only?
