xfs_mdrestore(8) FreeBSD System Manager's Manual xfs_mdrestore(8)

xfs_mdrestore - restores an XFS metadump image to a filesystem image

xfs_mdrestore [ -g ] source target
 
xfs_mdrestore -V

xfs_mdrestore is a debugging tool that restores a metadata image generated by xfs_metadump(8) to a filesystem. The source argument specifies the location of the metadump image and the target argument specifies the destination for the filesystem image. If the source is -, then the metadata image is read from stdin. This allows the output of be another program such as a compression application to be redirected to xfs_mdrestore. The target can be either a file or a device.
xfs_mdrestore should not be used to restore metadata onto an existing filesystem unless you are completely certain the target can be destroyed.

-g
Shows restore progress on stdout.
-V
Prints the version number and exits.

xfs_mdrestore returns an exit code of 0 if all the metadata is successfully restored or 1 if an error occurs.
