    Note to the author:

    some of the filename is you tar examples look like adult photos to me (e.g. Miley**photo101203.flv). Just want to let you know in case that was not on purpose…

    Thanks for the helpful tutorial.

      @Franklin,
      What a finding….:) even I don’t know that I’ve used such images in my tar command examples. Actually I handle one large photo site in our media company. I think I tried those commands on that server and taken those images as example for tar command…..
