    By contructing your command properly:

    tar cvf /usr3/newfile /usr2

    [I'd find this more mnemonically useful:

    tar cvf /usr3/usr2.tar /usr2
    ]

    How much data is on /usr2/ ? More than 2GB?

    As you've failed to say which OS you're actually using, it's hard to say
    exactally which fault causes this.

    I'm picking it's the usual 2GB file-size limit which is in place on most of
    the SCO Unix/Unixware products (Unixware after 7 has 'largefile' abilities
    though).

    If you want to create a backup-file (image-file), then you might want to
    compress it as you go, rather than creating a flat-file first.

    Give us details, and we'll give 'em back.

    Sorry for the delay in responding and thanks. I was on vacation. All I can
    say is "Oops". This shows that I don't work enough with SCO to try to do
    these commands by memory. I should have had the cheat sheet with me.

    Thanks for the help. I'm sure that I can get the project done.
