So, I am trying to restore a Newznab installation by importing in all my NZBs from my previous installation. Except during the import, all your NZBs need to be unzipped/decompressed and not in a ".nzb.gz" format. Well I needed to figure out a way to unzip the compressed NZBs into their existing directories and also removing the original compressed NZB (mainly, to save hard drive space).

Just with my luck too, there is very little documentation available online on this subject.
