[opensuse] Backup .. restore ... access/ownership
I've just been though the tedious process of restoring from backup.
The 1T WD drive developed more unmappable bad sectors than it could handle, right in my /home partition! Bathtub so replaced under warranty. Tedium of doing reinstall.

Previously /home had been backed up rsync to thumb-drive :-)
Rsync out; rsync back in :-)
It was then the task of restoring the ~/Documents, ~/Mail, ~/Music etc from DVD. Mount as /mnt/dvd then rsync into place. Step-and-repeat.
I'd been a good boy and done my backups :-)

OUCH! For some reason everything seemed to be r--r--r-- root.root

I'd burnt the DVDs with K3B. Is this some side effect of putting a reiserFS on a DVD using K3B in data mode? Or what?

Any thoughts?

Think of managing change as an adventure. It tests your skills and abilities. It brings forth talent that may have been dormant. Change is also a training ground for leadership. When we think of leaders, we remember times of change, innovation and conflict. Leadership is often about shaping a new way of life. To do that, you must advance change, take risks and accept responsibility for making change happen.
