The -v flag is for "verbose". You should see a list of files being extracted as they are being extracted.
It will untar it into your current working directory (try "pwd" command).
Worked well thx.
But when i go to ftp and look at the folder. I dont see the untar`ed ones yet. Does it not show them until it finished completely?
How can i see/access them before it finishes? Because like i said, its a 100gb file it take hours to complete.
Also one more thing, i have killed the process in the middle many times, would it leave any files etc in anywhere (like temp folders or something) i should delete before i start untaring again?
