Does Amanda preserve and restore NTFS files permissions and attributes?

It actually depends on the program that is used to perform Windows backup.

Amanda enterprise edition (please contact [email protected]) supports Schily tar that backs up POSIX ACLs and extended attributes.

So I assume then that the Community Edition for Windows:
http://www.zmanda.com/downloads/community/Amanda/2.5.2p1/Windows/AmandaBackupClient-2-5-2p1.msi
does NOT support preservation of NTFS permissions?

Yes. This version uses gnu tar which does not preserve NTFS ACLs and extended attributes. Please note that it preserves file permissions.

Is that still true in 2.6.1?
I am using the community Edition 2.6.1 with ZWC 2.6 and am trying desperately to restore windows files/directories while preserving the ntfs permissions.
