You probably specified [*...] as the input specifier. Since none of
the "root" directories reside in any of the top directories (from the
* part), BACKUP didn't copy them. But non-empty "root" directories
would be created for you as you have to have "somewhere to put the
files", but I bet the attributes of such directories would not have
Specifying [000000...] as the input specifier should do the trick to
copy both empty and non-empty "root" directories.
