Ubuntu 12.10 on Lenovo x230 Tablet I5 intel. Very new system, and older retail box DVD of Windows 7 Pro 64bit.
So far I have downloaded Virtual Box from the Ubuntu Software center and then started installing it via Gui. Windows starts its install process but stops during the unpacking process. I left it for 3 hours and it stayed unpacking.
Trying to use the 7-zip self extracting archive GUI and it fails. When I try to create a "Self Extracting Installer" option, at the end of the install it runs my batch file and it appears to be extracting all the files just before it does that, but after extraction, the files are nowhere to be found (except within the .7z archive).
I have some tar.gz files that total many gigabytes on a CentOS system. Most of the tar.gz files are actually pretty small, but the ones with images are large. One is 7.7G, another is about 4G, and a couple around 1G.
I have unpacked the files once already and now I want a second copy of all those files.
I assumed that copying the unpacked files would be faster than re-unpacking them.
