I have a MacBook with Linux installed on the primary hard drive. On an external USB 3.0 drive, I have OS X installed.
The external drive has plenty of space so I would like to boot up OS X and make regular copies of the primary drive using
Performing the backup the other way would be simply done using something like:
dd if=/dev/sda of=/backups/backup.dmp, however, OS X is a little alien to me, so I'm not sure how to reference the primary drive from OS X.
- What would be the dd command line for making a backup?
- What would be the dd command line for restoring the backup?
