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). Thankfully after a little research I was able to put together the following command that would accomplish this.
[crayon attributes]
find . -name “*.gz” | xargs gunzip
In the end, this command just recursively searches your working directory for any “.gz” files and decompresses them in their current directory and lastly… removes the original compressed “.gz” file.
