I have a 46GB tar file containing an .img of an old partition. Unfortunately, it produces a 0-byte file when un-tar'ed.
The tar file was produced on linux, I'm on windows now. I have tried WinRAR, and tar (from unixutils).
Note: It was actually originally a tar.bz2, but apparantly bzip2 defaults to deleting the original archive when decompressing, so now all I have is the tar file.
Anyway, what can I do about it?
