the inodes of the files in the backup are stored only for historical reasons ;-) .
The are not used and will not be used in the future. The only reason for them still being there is that I don't want to change the format for the.md5CheckSum file.

So you can copy the backup(s) however you want.

Best Regards and I hope you like the little tool,

Since inode numbers are stored in .md5CheckSums.bz2 it does not seem to be wise to rsync a backup directory to a new filesystem.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks for your great work
