Backup Exec - Preserve Ownership During Restore?

I noticed that after restoring a directory, the properties of the individual, restored files now show myself as the owner.  

It would be nice to be able to see who created a file and not have this information replaced with either my or the backup exec account after a restore.  Is there a way to preserve ownership when restoring files?

I think there is no such way as this would cause more problems to users than bring advantages. If you restore files imaged from one user with specific policies and access rights in another machine due to backup source machine crash - then you get inaccessible files because the ownership was done under different account.
But you can write to Symantec and suggest enhancement that would allow you selecting - inherit ownership and file settings of the current user during backup - so they could implement this feature in future releases.
