How can I unzip such files in ubuntu?
I have a list of files end with those extensions

filename.tar.gzaa  
filename.tar.gzab  
filename.tar.gzac  
filename.tar.gzad  
filename.tar.gzae  
filename.tar.gzaf

they have the same 'filename' with different suffix in extension. And gzaa, to gzae has the same file size 1.1G and gzaf has a small file size.

I think all these files are 1 big zip file.

how can i unzip them?

  • Have you attempted using wildcards? What have you tried, and what happened? Also, what shell are you using?(I'm assuming Bash) – hexafraction Jan 16 '13 at 21:27

Based on the file extensions, it seems like you're trying to extract something you downloaded from Symantec. If so, run this:

cat filename.tar.gz* > temp.tar.gz

to combine the split files, and then

tar zxvf temp.tar.gz

to extract the resulting archive.

Update It seems that the files are for Symantec Storage Foundation (link here).
