backup directory with root only permissions?
i would like to create a backup directory on my external hdd that only root can access. i tried doing this by running konqueror as root and also by logging in as root, but in both instances i was unable to restrict access to the directory to root only. any suggestions?
also, after i get this set up successfully, what is the easiest (and safest) way to write to this directory while remaining logged in as a user?
thanks a lot.
