Instructions to backup Tails are wrong in terms of permission
Type of work:
Got a report from user telling that after applying the final commandline for backuping a persistence, the files are owned by root and thus you can't access them when booting the persistence of your backup...
I just tried and got a permission denied when trying to access files in my persistent folder.
That user told that "Changing --uid from 1000 (i.e. amnesia) to 0 (i.e. root) in the first part of the find, and only applying the command to the directories that should be owned by amnesia appears to have worked correctly (if slightly long-winded)."
