    Is there a way that I can copy the directory of a file in my HDD? I can "see" that directory by right click/Get info and the directory is in "Where" section, but it doesn't allow me to copy. Thanks :)

    You can also right-click that path in the Get Info window, and choose Copy.

    Right-click doesn't work on the Get Info window

    Funny, I can copy from the Where line. Finder version 10.6.5 (on my new iMac).

    Another option is to open Terminal and drag your file's icon into the Terminal window. The file's path appears on the command line.

    Must be a change introduced in Snow Leopard. The app I posted a link to saves having to open Terminal, for those who aren't on SL.

    This app requires OS 10.5 or 10.6, mine is 10.4, but dragging the file's icon into the terminal is simple enough :). Thank you guys!
