Many thanks for reply.

I found something in Sybex Linux system administration book :

Unfortunately, the tar command won't allow you to compress a multi-volume backup. If you attempt to do so, you will get following error:
tar: Cannot use multi-volume compressed archives
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

http://books.google.com/books?id=97n...e:+exiting+now


but I was extracting :
# tar -xf /dev/st0

Out put :
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: home/shares/SupplyChain/jghods/DESKTOP 111/untitled folder 2: implausibly old time stamp 1969-12-31 19:00:00
tar: home/shares/SupplyChain/jghods/DESKTOP 111: implausibly old time stamp 1969-12-31 19:00:00
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Also if is it possible expaline more about time stamp?

Regards
