What options would I need to copy a xfs partion to a file on a different
drive?

currently I want to do "dd if=/dev/sdb6 of=/home/mitch/file"  but i'm
sure there some options I should be using and not sure what?  I want it
to remain a xfs file system just want to copy it mount it locally and
copy data off of it.
