I have a web application (ASP.Net/VB) on a 2003 server that i am considering using an upload component (thinPro at  One of the features of the client is that it can compress the upload into a .gzip file.  Once uploaded I need the ability to extract that in my code.  Does anyone have info on how to do that?

    If you have .NET 2005, the System.IO.Compression namespace has classes that can handle .gzip files.
