How to extract damaged tar?

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hello friends,

How to extract damaged tar?

I have a tar file which is corrupted by an unknown virus.

I haven’t installed any antivirus that may protect my Windows 7 64 bit computer system.

Give me a possible solution to fix this damaged tar file or any option to recover it.

Thanks and Regards,

Denise Collins.
