Not intending to complain, but I literally, actually _just now_ said that:

I don't know for certain because, frankly, NTFS is so unpromising a
target for Linux backups that it never would occur to me to try, except,
if I were absolutely forced to use NTFS as a target, backing up trees
inside some container archiving format such as tar or cpio that is
specifically designed to encapsulate *ix metadata.
