I've done a Backup some time ago using 7zip, in which I splited the Files in 14 2GB (aprox) files. I'm running Ubuntu Server 15.10.

This is what I'm trying to run in order to extract them:

7z x Backup.7z.001

Just in case I've also tried (although I don't get the difference between 'x' and 'e'):

7z e Backup.7z.001

And this is what I get:

7-Zip 9.20 Copyright (c) 1999-2010 Igor Pavlov 2010-11-18

p7zip Version 9.20 (locale=en_GB.UTF-8,Utf16=on,HugeFiles=on,2 CPUs)

Processing archive: Backup.7z.001

Error: E_FAIL

I've been doing some research and it seems "E_FAIL" error means "lack of disk space". However, I have plenty of diskspace, this is what I get when I run "df -h"

If you require any more information, please let me know.

Thank you!

  • where are you trying to extract to - your home? – Ron Feb 23 '16 at 14:18
  • @Ron I've tried in /srv/Samba/photos, then I've tried in /home/cristian/Test just in case but still nothing. – Ckubrak Feb 24 '16 at 16:01
