Loaded a live disk into a Windows based machine with NTFS files. Being a Linux user for some years, using
tar came to my mind instantly and made some backup archives from partitions and stored them onto an NFS mounted partition on another machine. Made System recovery by shipped disk with first machine and this deleted partitions, then I Changed partition table, and reformatted partitions (as NTFS again), and extracted
tar.gz archives from NFS mounted partition into them. And noticed files with non-ascii names are missing. Neither WinRar on windows doesn't show up those files. I'm very sad because it's not my system and files were very important for owner.
What happened? Does tar (or gunzip) does have problems in reading from NTFS? Is there a chance I get files back from archive?
