Backup: directory permissions
« on: May 29, 2021, 01:33:12 AM »
So I don't want to backup the whole home directory, just separate files. The problem is those files sit in subdirectories and when I reboot all those subdirs are recreated but owned by root. File permissions get restored properly, directories don't

By design, that's how tar operates. IIRC there's previous topics about this.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
