I agree with Carl, if you did your backup on a file by file basis that
you have lost all of the file attributes. I always create a tar file of
the filesystem and then backup the tar file to DVD, that way you don't
lose the attributes.

Wait. You can keep all Linux filesystem attributes on a cdrom, if you
use the appropriate options.

You need to activate the Rock Ridge extensions, not Joliet (or both).
