But maybe now the ownership is wrong.
As root, 'chown -R username.groupname <directory_name>' will fix this hassle
although from what I saw a little while back the ownership appeared to be OK
but I will check again later today.

If you are root, the uid will be mantained. If you aren't, then mc will create the files as belonging to the user running mc.
This appears to be so, but I think that the permissions require adjusting because not all files are accessible (I didn't pay attention to which ones they were). I used 'chmod -R u=rwx, g=rwx, o= </path/directory_name>' to have all directories/files accessible by the new owner.


Never believe anything until it's been officially denied.
