Description Rebecca Cran freebsd_committer 2018-09-12 02:30:04 UTC
Etcher - https://etcher.io/ - is an application that runs on Windows, macOS and Linux to "Flash OS images to SD cards & USB drives, safely and easily."

It might be easier for users to use Etcher instead of Win32 Disk Imager that's currently recommended on https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/bsdinstall-pre.html in the section titled "Procedure 2.2. Using Windows® to Write the Image".
