Using 7-Zip portable i created a tar file containing a folder which also contains numerous files and folders (200mb+).
When i open the tar file it is empty, but the size of the tar file is exactly the same as the size of the folder which it supposedly contains.
It might be worth noting that the tar was outputted to a USB drive, and that the program also runs from the same USB drive. Also it has worked in the past using the same version.
Why does this happen and how can i fix it?
Does 7-Zip require any specific dependencies that may be missing causing this to happen?
