resource forks
Authored by: sven on Jun 20, '01 03:37:22AM

You probably killed your aliases because tar does not copy resource forks. Since most of the data files in OSX are "flat", problems are probably minor, but if you also keep OS9 files in your home directory you should be careful.

It might be safer to use the Finder (maybe even the OS9 Finder) for copying. There's also the CpMac tool in the /Developer section that respects resource forks and I've seen a hfstar floating around but I haven't tested either.
