comment Is there a way to diagnose a tar file when, on extract, files are missing but no errors are given?
pax is not able (apparently) to open it: pax: Failed open to read on 356.tar: Value too large for defined data type Unfortunately I did not think of storing data to check the status of the file. I'll have to add that and be more paranoid with the archives.

Always linux native, ext3, and the filenames are normal characters, just alphanumeric and underscores. tar -tvf 356.tar lists 103 files.

Nop, regular ls and ls -a gives the same number of files. Listing gives me the same number of files as the ones extracted. What is weird is the size discrepancy.
