I have a USB flash drive which is used for doing backups. I've noticed that when I do the backups, the access times for files and folders are getting updated.
Is there any way I can disable the atime/diratime options on USB flash drives? I'm assuming it would require a udev rule, since my USB flash drive is not specified in my /etc/fstab file.
Or would this be a moot point? I'm not sure if the Linux supports atime and diratime for FAT filesystems.
I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 with the LXDE desktop (so, Lubuntu).
