Does restric preserve meta data


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,


Yes, restic archives (and restores) most metadata, see

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


Thank you very much :slight_smile:
