Linux file-level recovery fails with the error message: "ctar: will not extract because...Operation not permittedrw"

SUMMARY

Linux file-level recovery fails with the error message: "ctar: will not extract because...Operation not permittedrw"

ISSUE

The error message: "ctar: will not extract because...Operation not permittedrw" may appear when attempting to recover files from a Linux backup tp a Linux target location. Though the job is labeled a failure, it is likely that only a fraction of the selected files did not successfully restore. In most cases these are certain system files that were not explicitly selected for recovery. 

RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, recover any files that did not initially restore successfully to an alternate location.
