The size of an individual file is limited to 2GB in OpenServer. Presumably you mean that the unzipped size is ~5GB and the zipped size is smaller? If you plan to extract the tar file, you should be able to: gzip -dc rwc8.tar.gz | tar xf - The amount of data that can flow through a pipe is not limited to 2GB. (But it will still fail if any individual file stored in the tar archive is larger than 2GB.) >Bela<
