    I have a problem and need some help if possible

    Hi there all. I have recently decided to start my own hosting, but here is the problem. My website I currently have is hosted with someone else, so I did a FULL backup within cpanel. I downloaded my backup from the server to my computer and deleted the backup on the server once I was done. Now this backup is a tar.gz file and I wanted to delete about 200mb (its a couple of .rar files) within this tar.gz so when I upload it to my new server, it wont have those in it anymore. Is this possible to do? If so then how can I do this so I can still use this backup (minus the .rar files) to upload within my new cpanel? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I think with the WinRar program you can view the files without unzipping them and delete single files. Make a backup locally before trying this

    Hello Parijs and welcome to WHT!

    Winrar as mentioned has this function, however your new hosting provider (if any) should have been able to do a complete copy of your old account to the new server where you will host your site.

    Best Regards,

    The easiest option would be to upload the content directly to the new host.
    If you're using a new cpanel provider they can use the 'restorepkg' script to restore the package with very little effort.

    If you just want to extract the data try 7zip &/or winRar as previously noted.

    Probably the best way aswell. Agree completely with that.
