    FAT32 external storage and file permissions
    Hi,
    Whenever I copy something to my external drive which is fat32 it gets created with file/folder permission rwxrwxrwx(777). How can I copy preserving my file permissions?

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    FAT doesn't support those perms, so everything's going to be 777... by design of the file system.
