Does restric preserve meta data


#1

Hello,
I am wondering if restic preserves the owner and permissions of the files it backs up. This would be very important to me because I want to use it to backup my docker volumes.

Thanks for your help :slight_smile:

Best wishes,
Timo

Yes, restic archives (and restores) most metadata, see https://restic.readthedocs.io/en/latest/040_backup.html#backing-up-special-items-and-metadata

This includes timestamps, ownership, and extended attributes. The more obscure file system features may not be supported.
