How To: Backup Amiga CF Card on a Mac

I would share the how to of backing up the alien Amiga formatted CF or SD card on a Mac.

Source: https://smittytone.wordpress.com/201...d-using-a-mac/

First, be careful to choose the correct value for "rdisk#" or you could wreck your hard disk. You can find the correct device by opening Terminal and typing:

diskutil list
For me it was indeed "rdisk2" and the Mac Terminal commands were therefore as follows:

sudo dd if=/dev/rdisk2 of=~/Desktop/amiga.img bs=1m
sudo dd if=~/Desktop/amiga.img of=/dev/rdisk2 bs=1m
Hope this helps.
