Hi Jerry,

Do you think that this method via the Disks tool is using dd (or a
similar cloning process) under the hood? So that it has actually merged
the task of mkusb into an existing Ubuntu tool :-)

Let us check if the interface is good enough to help people avoid
destroying data on an internal drive by mistake.

Best regards
