comment Does tar create new inodes to be archived?
Sorry, for being confused and confusing. This is my dilemma.. 'Say I'm using file system A that stores file attributes in some format called 'X'. Now, I tar a directory on this file system 'A' and untar in on file system 'B' that uses a different format for storing inode attributes. Will I be able to see the original file meta-data from system 'A''? I want to understand how the metadata is tar'ed in the first place and how is it un-tar'ed.
