filesystem that supports hard-links and creation time-stamps

Asked by Enda on 2012-07-30

Is there a filesystem that supports hard-links and creation time-stamps, so that I can backup my NTFS drive (with their file creation time-stamps)?

Does NTFS support hard links? I know you can link to an NTFS partition but I'm not sure you can make link files on it to other places.

If you want to backup the file system just use rsync, or grsync if you want a GUI

NTFS does not support hard links.

So why do you need hard links if the file system doesn't support it?

I want to backup my files on a different file system.

Then backup away, I'm not sure it will retain the NTFS permissions but you should be able to use Clonezilla and it should be ok

Can you help with this problem?
