I had a large (~60G) compressed file (
split to break it into 4 parts and then
cat to join them back together.
However, now, when I am trying to estimate the size of the uncompressed file, it turns out it is smaller than the original? How is this possible?
$ gzip -l myfile.tar.gz compressed uncompressed ratio uncompressed_name 60680003101 3985780736 -1422.4% myfile.tar
