I'm running a redhat 7.3 workstation, and I have made a simple backup shell script using tar and gzip. It does work beutifully, however I would like to extend it so I can backup my windows 2k (ntfs) and win98 fat32 partitions as well.
I have the ntfs support and the mounting points all done, but before I try it I want to know if ther are any pros and cons with this ? (I do not intend to store the tar backup on ntfs .. but in linux).
Will tar understand the attribute and everything on a win2k ntfs volume ?
grateful for any input
