Sorry for my english being hard to understand.
I was told that an error on a tar achive can make it impossible to
restore a file from a non corrupted part of the archive. Is it true ?

star seems to be perfect. I'll use it.

Is it safe to try to use -tsize without -multivol ? Does it increase the
chances to restore an archive if one dvd is lost ?

Anyway I must solve the burned dvd mounting first :/
