dd-gui

Background

dd is a command line tool to do byte-exact copy.

Purpose

dd-gui is a simple GUI wrapper to enable you to easily launch dd without resorting to the command line. It will also show progress information throughout the copy.

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.

Changelog

2013-11-04: Added sudo to fix permissions issue on Mac OS 10.9 Mavericks (0.22)
2009-09-17: Added option to list devices (0.21)
2009-09-16: Added automatic unmounting and mounting of devices, plus more robust determination of source size (0.20)
2009-09-07: Initial release (0.10)

Future versions

I may add support for all dd features, just like Air Imager on Linux.
