"executable" permission lost when files copied to an NTFS partition
|Reported by:||dac324||Owned by:||3dEyes|
|Has a Patch:||no||Platform:||All|
recently, I encountered the following problem:
Backed up an installation directory for a Haiku app to a NTFS partition. When copying the files back to a newly created BeFS partition, the binary file of the app cannot be started any more (The file cannot be opened with Tracker("Invalid argument")).
Expected behavior: The restored app should start without any errors.
Apparently, some meta-information gets lost if a binary file is copied to a NTFS partition.
