Creating a tar or zip of a folder with no write access

Hello

I have this file structure

/dir1/subdir1
/dir2

I have full access on dir2 but only read and execute access on dir1. There is no write access for some reason. I am trying to zip and/or tar subdir1 with the output destination of the file as dir2.  I get an error in both cases relating to IO and permissions. I was hoping I might be able to zip/tar the files even though i don't have write permission to dir1 if I had write permission to the output location. Is there a way around this?

Thanks a lot

cp -rp /dir1/subdir1 /dir2

Then create tar in /dir2

I can't see why any of these wouldn't work; have you tried?

zip -r9 /dir2/my.zip /dir1/subdir1
tar czf /dir2/my.tgz /dir1/subdir1
