Changing Ownership of Extracted Files: (-C)

BRU stores the user and group ownership with the archived files and normally restores files with the original user and group ownership. In some cases it may be necessary to change the ownership of restored files to that of the user and group running BRU. The -C option is not an option you will normally use. It is typically used for extracting files from tapes that were written on a different system (with different user and group IDs). The ownership of such extracted files can be changed by using the -C option (be sure you use a capital C). For a full description, see Chapter 9, “Advanced Uses,” “Ownership of Extracted Files.”
