I have a directory containing around 1800 files in a directory , the directory size is now around 18gb. I need to create a single archive of the directory in order to download the whole contents. I have created a tar archive and downloaded the file , tried two times every time when I extract the archive file it says
The file is corrupted
so how can I create an archive of the whole 18gb directory with recovery record / verification such that it wont get corrupted. I don't need any compression on the archive. The 18gb directory exists on a Linux remote server with command line access only (minimal os)
Note: there is also some issues , cant split and combine the files because there are 1800 files. Also its difficult to download small small ranges of files from the 1800 files. The download is to local Windows machine from Linux remote machine over HTTP.
