Tar file with 7Zip/Winzip - file removal

  kevyea 18:40 23 May 2018


Unix tar files can be opened in MS Windows with WinZip etc. I understand files can be deleted from a tar that is on disk. Can anyone confirm this to be true and, more importantly, is the content of the deleted file actually removed or just the index is deleted.

Many thanks
