I have reinstalled my server and before that i did a backed up.
My backup is a tar file without special compress option (meaning that the size of the tar file is approximately the same than the size of the info backed up) and after that, the tar file, is compress with lz4. The backup.tar.lz4 has 350 G and the backup.tar has 1 T
Now i want to restore all the information but my server has only 2 T of capacity then i can't have the tar file and the info at the same time in the server.
How could i decompress the tar file without using an external device like a hard drive. Maybe i could use another server but i would have the same problem of space.
I have thought in using split for separate the 1 T file in files of 300G then decompress one of those files, remove it and go to the next file, but, can i decompress a split file directly or do i need to join them first?
