[SOLVED] Hello I am trying to install Cellranger. I downloaded the tar file from 10X genomics website and wanted to untar that. However I am getting bunch of these errors. It fails to untar. Below is the line I use for unpacking. I am on windows machine with xUbuntu installed via VM virtualbox.

I searched on the web that FAT32 systems might cause that issue. I use NFST on my local computer. Does it mean that allocated storage space for VM is also NFST ?

Any idea is appreciated! Thanks!

tar -zxvf cellranger-6.1.1.tar.gz

OK so I ran WinRAR on my host machine as an administrator to unpack. It worked.
