At this point in time, rsyncrypto does not back up either permission or
ownership. It is planned for the future, but with no definitive time frame.

Maybe it is possible to save the ownership and permissions of all files
into a file?

Something like that is also used to store Linux backups on e.g. FAT.

( I make a local copy of the system before the encryption, so no risk on
changings. )

One thing I can do quite easily is to have the backup files share the same owners and permissions as the original. I can do that without changing the file format (which is only planned for rsyncrypto 2, again with no clear date in view).

Would that solve the problem for you?
