comment bunzip2 to a different directory
I don't want the tar file extracted. The end result of whatever command I use needs to be the tar file in a different directory than the bz2 file, and the original bz2 file must not be deleted or modified.

yes, i need to spin them up manually. hdparm -z does not spin them up.
