    Host machine is running 10.10.3
    Hard drive is partitioned to two volumes:
    vol1 OS
    vol2 .DMG of vol1
    (plus the recovery partition)

    I would like to turn the entire hard drive into a DMG or clone straight to another drive.
    I can use diskutil or CCC under 10.9

    I've looked into CCC and it seems I can clone a vol but not entire drive...

    Please help.

    My suggestion:

    Partition the target drive into two partitions.

    Then use CCC to clone each volume -individually-.

    Don't worry about cloning the recovery partition.

    My opinion only.
