comment Unarchive file while reducing size of archive?
This is the kind of answer I was looking for. If it were possible to not corrupt the archive that would be even better, but I think that might just not be a possibility with my constraints.

so possibly an archival format that would allow for files to be removed from the archive without needing to make a second copy of the archive would be necessary?

This suggestion, and all the others like it, is very cool. However, this doesnt address the issue of needing to do it on the machine itself. The network speed of the machine makes it impractical to move such a large amount of data in a timely manner.

The second solution you offer is more of what I'm looking for. However, moving it to the cloud and back is impractical. This needs to be done in place.

@MonkeyZeus No more storage is able to be attached. The server is networked but the network speed is impractical for exporting and re-importing the uncompressed archive. The constraints of the problem are as they are stated. A 10GB file that needs to be uncompressed on a 20GB harddrive. There are only 10GB of free space making it, currently, impossible to simply unarchive the 10GB file.

@Ramhound Hundreds of files making it impractical to do by hand. The names of the files in the archive would need to be fetch programmatically.

Assume that it can fit. If this can be done by hand, it must be doable by a script. It seems to me like this would've been a problem someone has solved before.

It is out of the question. And what you just said is exactly the kind of solution I'm looking for. The only question is, how? (without doing it manually)

Are you positive that deleting files from an archive requires them to be unarchived first?

@Ramhound How do I know if both generations were supported by the same driver?
