The version of gzip and gunzip that I use supports recursion...

in the parent directory I can type

gzip -r *

and all file in the parent directory and its subdirectories are zipped, conversely

gunzip -r *

will unzip them all.

The following command will do that:

for %a in ("Y:\our\directory\*.gz") do gunzip %a

If you want to use this in a batch script, replace the "%a" with "%%a".

If gunzip.exe is not in the path, you'll have to specify the full path of the exe:
for %a in ("Y:\our\directory\*.gz") do "T:\he\install\directory\gunzip.exe %a
And just to be sure: you did replace the path to the directory with your path ("Y:\our\directory\*.gz")?
