    Unhappy Error extracting .raq file

    A former customer is having problems extracting a backup of his site (a .raq file) using the manual how-to from Cobalt's knowledgebase. After stripping the headers, it says to run this command:

    tar -zxvPpf out.tar.gz

    I get this error:

    gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
    tar: Child returned status 1
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

    Anyone know of a way to recover at least a part of the data there? Thanks.

    I usually just -xvf the tar file.

    I did however once encounter that problem with the unexpected end in a .raq file, and had to stop there cause I wasnt really to sure what was happening, but nevertheless I had to drop that .raq file cause I sure dont know too much about unexpected end errors and thought the file was somehow corrupt during backup.

    (could not recover it at all)

    I guess syou have to do some research on "unxpected end"
    or find soem uncompressor program which can at least get you partial of the stuff.
    Post here if you do find one. Ive given up on raq backups alerady. They stink.
