tar - extracting a single directory from a large archive?
I have this huge tar archive, zipped with bzip2. So its a *.tar.bz2 file. I'm trying to extract a single directory, test from the archive arch. The thing is like 4.6GB, and the test directory is probably 5MB. I can't tell if tar is "thinking" or "waiting for input".
I ran this:
tar -xvfz arch.tar.bz2 test
