    Problem reading large files - Header checksum is invalid

    Hi all,

    I am trying to work with large files and while trying to extract information, I get the following:


    Source: ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.Tar.TarInputStream

                   Method: ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.Tar.TarEntry GetNextEntry()

                   Message: Header checksum is invalid

                   Additional info: Error occurred importing feed file. Message:ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.Tar.TarException: Header checksum is invalid


       at ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.Tar.TarInputStream.GetNextEntry()


    Looking forward to hearing back.

    Have you tried reading the file in another tool, for example 7-Zip handles Tar, to validate the file. Also WinZip will extract Tar files.

    If it works in all those, we'd need to check the file. I can look at it if you can share it with me. If that is an option i will send you my email. How big is the file ? Perhaps it is too large to email; I use ADrive for those.

    Thanks, Dave
