> I keep my Windows 7 updated. I have just tried "tar --help" and the system found GNU tar, not bsdtar.
"bsdtar" will only be part from this version of windows 10 onwards
> In addition, I have 7zip which should probably be able to cope with the *.tar files but I have not tried.
In fact it does, just like the GNU tools installed using mingw.
