Ok, so, 'stored separately' = take up additional space? which is what I
want to avoid.

Yeah, this is why I asked... thx...

Ah, that should work perfectly...
So, just to make sure I understand, when I change the perms on the most
recent backup, if I were to go back and look at any of the previous
backups before that one, any files in those older backups that contain
files that are hard-linked in the most recent backup would reflect the
new permissions too, right?
