This hands-on lab will ask the student to work with the tar command line Linux utility to archive (backup) and then compress files and directories and then verify they are captured correctly.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
