I have a file docs.tar.gz2. When I try bunzip2 docs.tar.gz2 or tar -xvjpf docs.tar.gz2, I am informed that the file isn't a bz2 file and that child status is (2). I don't remember the command I was told to use to compress the file in the first place (a couple of months ago). What else can I try?
Good afternoon JD,
You should use gunzip not bunzip. Notice your file name - docs.tar.gz2 because the file ends with gz2, this should tip you off to use gunzip. if it were bz2, then bunzip. I hope this clears things up for you. Good luck!
