Symantec Backup Exec Question

I had a backup question for Symantec Backup Exec. Basically I want to know the difference between backing up a share vs. backing up the actual directory that contains the share.

For instance if I were to backup the directory containing the share rather than the actual share itself in the selection list, would the share permissions/attributes come along with the restore job? Or would I have to backup the share for these properties to apply on the restore job.

Thank you!

What version of Backup Exec are you running?

I don't think it matter which one you select as to my knowledge, share permissions aren't included when you restore a folder as they are kept in the registry. You would need to restore the System State as well.
