I dual boot my machine, but I spend 99% of my time running linux. I want to just mount my Windows C: partition in linux and run restic on it, but I am not sure if this will cause problems if/when I try to restore. Does anyone have any experience with this?
ACLs on the NTFS volume probably would not be backed up in this setup, but I’m not sure if restic backs them up even on Windows. If the permissions associated with the contents of the volume are not important to you (you’re only backing up documents in a user’s home directory, for example) then I can’t think of any reason why this wouldn’t work.
Yea, I was worried about that, but I didn’t know enough about file systems and restic to be sure. I guess I will just keep doing periodic full images of my windows disk.
