Hi guys,

I'm trying to backup files to my SD Card from an app located in the data/data folder.

I'm using ES File Explorer to copy the files, however after viewing the properties of the copied files I've noticed the following.

Owner: 00000 - root
Group: 01028 - sdcard_r

Whereas the original file displayed owner & group as the app accessing the file.

Any help on creating copies of files with the original permissions/owner/group maintained would be much appreciated.
