Thanks for all the suggestions.

I had ensure all the settings as mentioned by you especially below

cygcheck -f /bin/tar 
echo $CYGWIN - same as yours
fsutil behavior query symlinkevaluation - same result as yours.

I am using different tar format as mentioned upthread to form the
archive, for me after doing tar xf <abc.tar>, it always create
system file containing the symlink path as:
!<symlink> c:\tbs 
but never actually creates the symbolic link.

I have attached both the tar files with this mail, could you please
once check how does it work in your environment

16386.tar - create a folder in C:\ as C:\tbs, copy this tar
in that folder and extract it in that folder, this is symlink path
base.tar - Create any folder example: c:\Data, copy this tar in
that folder and extract it.

Please extract in order as mentioned to ensure that symlink folder
gets extracted first.
Please check contents of C:\Data\pg_tblspc, ideally it should contain
symlink to C:\tbs.

With Regards,
Amit Kapila.
