Creating a tarball on Solaris issue with errors

Hi All,
We are planning to migrate from Solaris to AIX, and we have a requirement to move all files modified in last 7 days to AIX.

i found many helpful forums on this site but somehow the issue was still not solved:

Used the following command from the directory which we want to scan
find "$PWD" -type f -mtime -4 2>/dev/null | xargs /usr/sfw/bin/gtar -Pcvf - | gzip -c > /folder1/folder2/folder3/file_clink.tar.gz

I could not use tar as it has restrictions on file size and was giving error:
Tar too large to archive. Use E function modifier

Now the issue coming is i am getting following error as files keep on modifying:
/usr/sfw/bin/gtar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
I want to ignore these and let the tar ball be created.

Final tar ball created skips all files above these errors when i check the contents of final file.

Since this is a one time task so we are not bothered much even if it takes little extra time. We can also avoid zip in case that solves the issue, but i tried and got same result

Thanks for your help
