HFS ~ HTTP File Server / tar headers corrupt
« on: April 16, 2016, 05:52:03 AM »
When using the archive feature, the resulting tarballs have incorrect headers; the length metadata is bad (I think) making unpackers think that there is data erroneously packed at the end of the archive. 7zip particularly has problems as it will not ignore header errors when extracting unlike other programs that do ignore them. 7zip will unpack the length specified in the header and will leave off the rest  (I think). From my tests it seems to have something to do with folder recursion but I could not say for certain. I can PM a link to an example problem ( i don't really want to put my dyndns out there)
