I have tar a linux folder(with some source file in it) and copy it to windows, then I use winrar to unpack it. But when unpack some files winrar tip me that: file existing, overwrite? I think the reason is windows cannot identify linux link file, isn't it? So what should I do to avoid this case?

It could also be the case that you have both Foo.text and foo.text in the archive... –  doomster Apr 14 '13 at 15:44
    
You may wish to look at Dealing with symbolic links (and others), here at stackoverflow. And also NTFS symbolic links at wikipedia. –  artless noise Apr 14 '13 at 15:44
