    Merge .tar with CMD

    Hello all,

    My server backups are automatically send to Onedrive, but the Onedrive API splits the .tar files.
    So I need to merge the files, before I can open them on my PC.

    The backups have a different names each day, so it's a pain in the ass to always look for the file names, and then merge.

    Is there a CMD command that can do that automatically ?

    This is the command:
    copy /B/Y backup_1909051552.tar + backup_1909051552.tar1 D:\Onedrive\serverbackup.tar

    I would like CMD to auto find the name of the .tar files "backup_1909051552".
    Something like:
    copy /B/Y §.tar + §.tar1 D:\Onedrive\serverbackup.tar

    I hope you understand what I'm asking, and if this is possible?

    Company merging on the horizon

    The Inq. talks about some major company merging that could take place this summer. What is likely to happen is summarized in the following list:

    • eBay is in talks with Microsoft and Yahoo regarding cooperation and perhaps even a combination
    • Oracle, SAP and perhaps Novell might be "up to something"
    • Telecoms will surely continue to be a big source of deal-making and not just through attempts to build scale and geographic coverage. Deals such as Sky-Easynet and eBay-Skype suggest that combinations of services could be the way forward.
    • Sun might be bought by Fujitsu Siemens, HP or Dell

  3. apt-cyg install fails, /usr/bin/tar: This does not look like a tar archive

    When I try to run apt-cyg to install some Cygwin package, I get the following:

    It performs this in a loop, continuously returning back to the original package, and then iterating through its dependencies.

    I am using Cygwin on Windows 10. I have attempted:

    • Reinstalling Cygwin and apt-cyg (hoping, mostly, that the root of this was some sort of faulty tar install or bad settings file a reinstall would restore to default)
    • Running Cygwin in an cmd shell that is "run as administrator"
    • Modifying my PATH variable to have /cygwin/bin at the top, heirarchically
    • Waiting patiently for the Sun to eventually expand and swallow the Earth

    Any suggestions that can help me forward would be immensely appreciated.
