asr

Restore (copy) a disk image onto a volume. The command name stands for Apple Software Restore.

  • Restore a disk image to a target volume:

sudo asr restore --source {{image_name}}.dmg --target {{path/to/volume}}

  • Erase the target volume before restoring:

sudo asr restore --source {{image_name}}.dmg --target {{path/to/volume}} --erase

  • Skip verification after restoring:

sudo asr restore --source {{image_name}}.dmg --target {{path/to/volume}} --noverify

  • Clone volumes without the use of an intermediate disk image:

sudo asr restore --source {{path/to/volume}} --target {{path/to/cloned_volume}}
