Hi All,

I've just (re)installed F12 on my laptop, & tried to copy my home
directory (F11) from my desktop using tar.

The create went OK, & I can do tar tvh on the desktop no probs. But when
I connect the external drive to the laptop, tar tvh says it's closing
because of previous errors; ark refuses to open the .tar.gz file as it
has errors.

Please show us the actual error message. You are not providing sufficient details to be able to help.


Hi Ralf,

ark puts up a dialog box
reading the archive "xxxx.tar.gz"
failed with the error
'The archive reading failed with message: Damaged tar archive'

and tar tvf reads 45 entries and then

    tar: skipping to next header
    tar: exiting with failure status due to previous errors

but doesn't say what previous errors!
