Unless you really need to use cygwin for other things, it sounds very
much like you are asking for a non-cygwin way to deal with tar files.
This really isn't a list for discussing non-cygwin solutions to

few options so you should be able to find some no-cygwin program which
solves your problem fairly easily.
