You could also try xfs_copy, it makes a copy of the filesystem and works on the underlying device, with the filesystem unmounted. There's a man page for it.Is there any difference to using dd when the destination is no xfs filesystem? And if I read the description correctly it does not allow to copy individual files?
xfs_copy knows about the xfs format, so it only copies what it needs to. dd will copy every bit on the source disk. So, xfs_copy is more efficient. There is no option to copy individual files.
Depending on the problem with your original filesystem, perhaps xfs_copy might not be the best choice.
