10.6: Use Archive Utility to make zip backups
Authored by: ekc on Oct 06, '10 10:03:57AM
Well, I don't have a Leopard machine on hand, but I just tested tar under Snow Leopard and it seems to save and restore resource forks. It's using the AppleDouble format internally from the looks of it. As an alternative to tar, you might consider xar which has always supported resources. I think Apple now uses that format internally in installer packages.
