In my server(windows server) I have 3 tar files. (file.tar, file.tar-2, file.tar-3). I want to merge those files. (Those are generated by some server tool).

So I am looking for a tool to merge those files. I tried winrar, 7zip. But no help. The total size of those files are around 400mb.

Please help me to merge those files.

Thank You

This is something for superuser or serverfault. Try tar for windows: – Michael-O Jul 27 '11 at 5:54

If you get a hold of a GNU tar executable (you could use Cygwin or MinGW) then you can use the -A option. Take a look at this page for examples of the uage.
