Doesn't preserve paths


If the paths gets too deep (longer than 2-3 levels), the files/folders are simply created in the root. Not really useful. :-/

tested and works as expected.

Download a tgz file from and try to extract it to a folder of your choosing. Notice that the file structure isn't preserved at all.

I just tried this on my local machine,

d:\tools\tartool\TarTool.exe C:\Users\Administrator\Downloads\ uncomp

and found everything inside the uncomp folder with the right structure.

What does your command line look like?

I would like to improve this if it's not intuitive.
