I have downloaded ddrescue-1.16.tar.gz and I am trying to extract it from the 'Downloads directory to /media/Data/Downloads/ddrescue-unzipped.
I have ownership of that folder and full user rights to both locations and I am using either sudo or gksu
e.g. gksu tar xzvf ddrescue-1.16.tar.gz /ddrescue-unzipped
I am sure that there is nothing wrong with the paths as I have been able to change directory into them both.
This is the latest result:
roy@roy-desktop:~$ cd /media/Data/Downloads
roy@roy-desktop:/media/Data/Downloads$ gksu tar xzvf ddrescue-1.16.tar.gz /ddrescue-unzippedtar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
roy@roy-desktop:/media/Data/Downloads$ sudo tar xzvf ddrescue-1.16.tar.gz ddrescue-unzipped
tar: ddrescue-unzipped: Not found in archive
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
Please can anybody help. I have been on this for over four hours. Many thanks
