I know that this is the Samba list, however I searched the net and asked
the below question on MS mailing lists, but I didn't got any usefull info,

Does anyone know of any free tool that can be used from WinXP command line
to backup files from NTFS 5 volumes paths (eg.
\\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy1) to a file on a diferent
disk or to a stream. The specific of my problem is that I realy need to
backup NTFS ACL-s, extendent attributes and posibly alternate data

The ntbackup.exe has two problems:
- it can't operate on volume paths
- can't be used in NON-interactive mode during restore

Is it realy posible that there isn't a tool like tar or cpio for WinXP
that support the NTFS specifics?
