You wrote the tar file to the partition itself (a "raw write"), not to a file
IN that partition.
What you wanted (IF you wanted to be able to mount the disk) was (after
tar cvfPp /mnt/zip/save.tar /(path)
Actually, the tarred files are still on the disk - they're just not mountable.
If you DIDN'T make any changes with fsck, you should be able to retrieve the
tar xf /dev/sda4
