What other alternate methods are available to recover corrupt tar file apart from the commercially available Advanced TAR file recovery and when is the most appropriate period to recover the corrupted files before complete distortion?
Alternate methods to recover corrupt tar file apart from commercial tool
I suggest using cpio utility "copy in and out".
It's a file archiver associated with file formats and part of most Linux operating system releases.
Many users were able to recover corrupted tar files using this utility, you can try this command,
$ cpio -ivm -H tar < new-try/new-try.tar
Hope this solution works for you and if it didn't try a program called "star".
