savedir and restdir questions

Post by brucehvn » Thu Feb 24, 2011 7:44 pm

When using the savedir and restdir functions on an NTFS filesystem, does fsa still maintain all the same information about each file it does with savefs and restfs?

I've got a hard drive that's failing and I'm having trouble getting through a whole filesystem archive so I want to try saving several archives of each folder off the root. I want to make sure that when the data gets restored to a new HD, it has all the NTFS attributes/sids, etc.

If that won't work, then if I make several archives using "savefs" and excluding all but certain directories for each one, when I do a "restfs", will it accumulate the files as I restore each archive, or does each restfs essentially wipe the previous information?
