    Hi,

    I’m looking for library that can handle the wonderful diversity of the zip/tar/gzip world and I’m playing with Xceed. Unfortunately it failed on my first test file. Can you have a look and check to make sure I’m using your tool correctly. The error I’m getting is: FileSystemNotSupportedException “Additional information: An unknown header type was encountered.”

    The file is here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7579883/Sample.tar

     var tar = new TarArchive(new DiskFile(@"C:\Temp\TarInput\Sample.tar"));
                var folder = new DiskFolder(@"c:\Temp\TarOutputCommecricial");
                tar.CopyFilesTo(folder, true, true);

    Thanks

    Pawel

    Hi Pawel,

    Unfortunately, the Tar format has many different variants.

    Xceed Tar for .NET only supports the “USTAR” format.

    Hi Diane,

    I understand. Do you plan to extend the Tar support ?

    Thanks

    Hi Pawel,

    Unfortunately, there are currently no plans to extend the Tar support. We apologize for the inconvenience.
