    I have downloaded a cPanel theme tarball, however I cannot extract it in a Windows machine.

    Winzip gives a "....Trailing Garbage...." error in the process, and stops before the whole pack unzipped.

    WinRAR gives over 100 errors:
    ! C:\download\x2.tar.gz: Cannot open ..\x\backup (x2\backup --> ..\x\backup)
    ! C:\download\x2.tar.gz: Symbolic link points to missing file
    .
    .
    .

    Is there any special way to unzip theme tarballs ?

    Can you tell your winzip or winrar program to skip symbolic links? (sorry, didn't bother to go look)

    Might be best to do it right on the server. cPanel's File Manager will allow you to untar the file. Then, if needed, you can download the individual files for local modification.

    Thanks for the reply dafut.

    There was no option about symbolic links.
    However, I have found a fantastic new FREE archiver: ALZip. I Extracted the files without any problem :)
