Small utility for writing to a disk image to a USB drive.

Usage: writedisk <input>

This will scan for connected USB disks and prompt for you to select one. Then the input file will be copied to the drive. The copying operation is done with a small writedisk_copier binary that is automatically invoked with sudo.

Linux only for now.


cargo install writedisk
