Starting File
-K name
Starts an operation in the middle of an archive. Use in conjunction with --extract (--get, -x) or --list (-t).

If a previous attempt to extract files failed due to lack of disk space, you can use --starting-file=name (-K name) to start extracting only after member name of the archive. This assumes, of course, that there is now free space, or that you are now extracting into a different file system. (You could also choose to suspend tar, remove unnecessary files from the file system, and then restart the same tar operation. In this case, --starting-file is not necessary. See Incremental Dumps, See interactive, and exclude.)
