How to unzip and untar a xxx.tar.gzip.part file>
 
Hi,

I downloaded an HTML files that was in the following format,

filename.html.tar.gzip.part

How can I untar and ungzip it, and get the html file? What does this .part mean?


Regards,
Harsha.

I think it is an incomplete download, though I may be wrong. Are you sure that it is a complete download?

harsha just chek the output of the command
file filename.html.tar.gzip.part
if it gives u that it is a .tar.gzip file then just rename the file as a .tar.gzip file using the mv command and then use
tar -zxvf filename.html.tar.gzip
command to get the file untarred

the .part part of the file means that it is not the whole file. I suggest go download it again. once you have the full file cd to the directory you saved it to. then run these commands:
gzip -d filename
tar -xvf filename

Successfully untarred..
 
Hi all,

you were right. The .part extension was because of improper(incomplete) download. I downloaded again and this time was successful.

Hi Hitesh, thanks for that. I thought the .part extension was something new that I didn't know. It's the first time I ever got such a file.


Thanks to all,

Harsha.
