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?

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
