You can try one of the following approaches to decompress .tar.zst files.

Approach 1:

  • Run the command: zstd -d file.tar.zst . It will create .tar file.
  • Run the command: tar -xf file.tar to decompress the file.
Approach 2:
  • Run the command: tar -I zstd -xf file.tar.zst to decompress the file. "-I" [-I, --use-compress-program=COMMAND] is used to specify the program name.
