I wouldn't say it was an error. It looks like files were changes during tar, that was reported, and that's all. I think you you need to check if those file were really modified.

how do you think tar can create a tarfile for you if the sources are continuously changing? What is the expected result?

sorry, but I do not understand. if it was the directory /vol/cha-work/_ARCHIVE/to_be_archived the times here are irrelevant.

still unclear, that output has no real meaning if we do not know anything else about that issue.

mmm...

looks like its working as i have created a 10gig file using the dd comand and its located in untitledfolder/

tar -cf /vol/cha-archive/audio/untitledfolder.tar untitledfolder/

and that works without any warnings about file changed as we read it

but i cant work it out because the folder after_louise_1606 i know 100% def it is not being written/read to at all so i dont know why its giving me these warnings and then failing on the tar

oh well

You have no background processes, perhaps anti-malware scanners, filesystem checkers or similar, that could be touching files?

If you want to investigate further, you could take a look at inotify.

--warning=no-file-changed might be more relevant. However, I imagine that it would be better, although possibly non-critical, to find out what's actually causing the problem.

If those are the only warnings that are being generated then tar should work ok (unless, for example, tar decides that it has surpassed a warning limit or that some combination of events is deemed a critical failure).

Give it a go.

You think its still tarring up those individual files its producing the warning for or it just gives up altogether and fails the whole tar as its producing loads of warnings for individual files?
