Here’s how to clone an SD card on a Mac. Useful when you want to backup and restore your Raspberry Pi.
Find path to SD card
Should be something like
/dev/disk1, depending on what other devices you have connected to your system
Make image of SD card
dd operations, hit
[ctrl] + t to check transfer status
Transfer image to SD card
This will take much longer than making an image, since you are writing to an SD card, so grab a drink!
Caution: Double check input and output disk paths before running copy commands
Image clones can be huge files, so compressing them will help save HD space!
