Again, this is documented, but I find this tool can be useful for other purposes. It is useful for simply copying files around, regardless of permissions! It can also be used to copy files out of snapshots, even if you don’t have SnapRestore.

dd if=/vol/vol0/.snapshot/hourly.0/etc/rc of-/vol/vol0/etc/rc.old

if = input file
of = output file

    just to add something in this.

    dd is a advanced command so to access it you have to go in advanced or diag mode and moreover dd is not available when the disk sanitization feature is licensed.
