Hi,

 That does seem odd. I have a few questions. 

 - Is this a 12G tar file or is the contents of the tar 12G in total?
 - Is the contents a single large file or many small files
 - Does any of the file extract
 - Does it always fail at the same point?
 - Are you able to extract a smaller tar file?

Matt.

Interesting.

 There could be various things causing this, and it may require support to identify. Is there anything in the system log files at the time of the failure?

Regards,
Matt.
