Well after more digging found that the files not included in tar archive were tied to hard links.  Displayed by find command:

find . -type f \! -links 1 -prinff "%i %n %p\n" | sort -n

Now I need a solution to cloning a partition that clones hard links correctly.

- tried drivecopy ( died on CRC error )
- dd incorrectly writes one less sector than read on partions with odd numbered sectors
