I have a tar(.gz) file created on a Linux system, and the filenames contain colon characters. The tar utilities I can find on Windows don't extract these files at all. How can I do this, ideally from the command-line?
If there's some way to do a filename-translation at the compression end, that would be ok too.
To make it clearer what I mean:
# on linux system touch example:file tar cvf test.tar example:file # copy test.tar to windows system tar xvf test.tar ... can't create 'example:file': Invalid argument
