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.
