Workshop Resources

Thanks so much for helping us fix my machine! Now let’s get everything up into one nice package.

### Secure your files, so they don’t get tampered with again

tar is a command that creates and extracts archived files.

The format is: tar [filenames].

flagsUses
-ccreates archive
-xextracts archive
-fcreates archive with given filename

Use tar to secure your directory of files! You are going to want to create an archive with the name files.tar.gz.
