I wanted to compress a directory whit size of about 25 GB to
.tar.xz format using following command:
tar --xz --create --verbose --file myArchive.tar.xz /patch/to/my/dir
but got these error lines:
xz: (stdout): Write error: file too large tar: myArchive.tar.xz: wrote only 2048 of 10240 bytes tar: Child returned status 1 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
I tried it for
.tar.gz format too and got approximately same error lines.
I am using Fedora 32 and the destination file system is W95 FAT32(LBA). The file stopped writing at about 4.3 GB. What's strange is that my disk has more than 500GB free space.
What is the problem and how can I fix it?
