Extracting Tar.gz file gives Error


Dear all ,

Yesterday I backup my crucial folder by the below command :

tar -czf /media/disk-2/Teams-1.tar.gz $BACKUPDIR

But when I am extracting the backup file (44 GB) , it gives the below error :

/bin/gtar: Skipping to next header

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--format violated
/bin/gtar: Child returned status 1
/bin/gtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

I am working on Linux systems ( CentOS -5.4 ) and tar ( GNU tar ) 1.15.1

Any help will be appreciated.



Thanks
