I backed up my /library/webserver/documents folder to a firewire HD. When I dragged it back, the permissions went all kablooey:
drwxr-xr-x 36 root admin 1224 16 Jan 16:58 Documents
sudo chmod 755 Documents does not give groups write privileges.
1. Do I just need to go read a good chmod tutorial, or is something aberrant happening here?
2. Is there any way to apply appropriate permissions recursively?
Many thanks. [more inside]

I have a WinXp machine with three hard drives, each one holding 100GB. I'm researching backup alternatives, and there are tons these days (tape drives, external firewire drives, jazz drives, etc.). I'd like to find a solution that strikes a nice balance between ease of use, cost and durability. Any suggestions?
