I am trying to
ipfs get a 3 gb file. The get completes very quickly (which makes me think that I already have most of the blocks locally) but then fails with
Error: contains more than one root or the root directory is not the first entry : tar has invalid root
I haven’t had much luck finding this error in google or in the go-ipfs repo. My desktop client reports that I’m hosting 2GB of data (despite only having one small file in the ‘files’ tab) which increases my suspicion that I have most of the blocks.
What is the cause of this error, and can anything be done to correct it?
