I have a gzipped directory called "new" which contains other directories and files, that I compressed in the following way
gzip -cvr --no-name /path-to-directory/new > new.gz
I have copied this >700MB to another location (on a different server) and would now like to unpack it. So, on the new server I go to the directory has "new" in it and I use
The result is a single 880MB file - no directories or smaller files.
What did I do wrong and how can I correct this?
