  • Hi

    When i m creating tar file by using 7-zip. Resultent file is not larger then original txt file. Is it ok.
        Is there any one how can clreafy this.

     
    • Hmmm.  I just used 7-Zip to create a .tar of a .txt file (the source file type shouldn't matter here) and the output file is 1298 bytes larger than the input.

      Examining the .tar shows a 512-byte header and the input data "blocked" to the next 1024-byte boundary.
