I am using growisofs/mkisofs for file backup to DVD, and for the most part they work very well.
I have run into one problem that I don't understand and cannot find any relevant information: The -R option will result in data files being copied with correct owner and permissions. However, directories are always owned by root and have the permissions r-x r-x r-x.
Why the inconsistent treatment for data files and directories?
Is there any way around this?
