All archives are corrupt (4 posts)

    I've tried to unpack my tar.gz files from several different backups going back to May. Every one that I pick fails to unpack the tar.
    "There are data after end of archive" is always the error message.
    Using 7zip.

    Tried WinRAR and had the same problem.
    Did a tar.bz2 backup and it decompressed without problem. But it's a lot larger backup.

    I second thinguy on this issue and add standard backup format .zip as well
    Hasn't been a problem for us - we maintain synched site backups using FTP
    Database backups are fine - it's only file backups with this problem.
    Using PCLZip method - none of the servers we use like PHP method for the scheduled database backups

    You guys scared me so I just did a backup and untarred it (it's just a straight tarball). It uncompressed with no errors using IZArc, and the data all looks good. FYI.
