Hey all, I'd like to make a "live" backup of a file system on a regular
basis, and maintain permissions, but have such a thing be only writable by
root at any given time. (i.e. I keep a backup drive unmounted, and mount
it read-only when users need their data). The thing is, I have to mount
it read-write in order to create the archive. Is there any way to make a
file system read-only for normal users but read-write by root?
This is a local filesystem.
