    Hi all,
    I am writing a data backup / restore utility for Mac OS X.
    If a do a backup of a file with extended attributes and ACL on an x86 machine, should it be possible to restore the data file along with its ACL and extended attributes on an x64 machine or a Power PC machine?
    On both machines, I am using Mac OS X 10.4

    The attributes are part of the file system, so yes it should work as long as the file systems are the same.
