Panel | How to Convert Tar File to ZIP

I'm sure you're here when you try make a backup of your world and you're having a problem.

First, the reason why when you compress your world folder and it becomes a TAR file is because our server is running on Linux, that's why it isn't on ZIP type.


Go to any TAR to ZIP Website converter like this one CloudConvert

Upload your File Select Convert

Once it is done, there will be a Download Button

It will now be on ZIP file and can be extracted using Windows Devices with 7Zip or WinRAR

But What happens if you Extract a TAR file on a Windows/Mac Devices?

For example, the backup here is named SkynodeWorld.B83l.tar

If you try to extract it using Windows Devices, it will generate this file SkynodeWorld.B83l without the .tar

B83l can be any combinations of 4 Characters, it can be A4k1, 8KM2 or W420 and it isn't a file type.

Remember, you're gonna convert the file with .TAR at the end

All done! It should be good now
