Usage

Both source and destination can be either a system device from /dev or a file with the extension .img, for example: /dev/disk4, /files/dd.img
The app has only been tested on Mac OS 10.6.x

Warning

If you choose the wrong device as the destination, you can erase important data! Proceed with caution.
