Hi, I am using gtar instead of tar command.
I can gtar and copy 3 gb. tar file. There is no problem at the moment!! total size of archive is 70 gb. Smilie I am compressing in parts all of the archive.

We need a lot of information.

1.Windows OS
2. Solaris OS (uname -a output is good)
3. Where (what OS) are the archives located? Sometimes you can extract tar files directly across the network, without copying the tar file.
