Is there a way to preserve the owner and group permissions without having
Well, this is not possible on the filesystem level of course, but what
about storing the owner/group information in a supplementary file that can
be read by rsync to later reconstruct this information?
I'm using rsync to perform a server-to-server backup of a machine's hard
drive. If the hard drive being backed up were to actually fail, I would
want to be able to restore all the files with their exact ownership
However, I think that needing to have root access on the backup server
should not be necessary to do this...
