Hi @gbis1719,

 

It is easier to extract and read gzip files on linux system as compared to windows.

For windows, you can install Linux on windows using WSL. (Ubuntu WSL is available on Microsoft Store)

 

You can then use the gunzip command as shown below -

gunzip filename.log.gz

Or

gzip -d file.gz

This converts the .log.gz file to simply .log file. Hope this helps!

There are other ways as well. Please find the below blog -

Hi @gbis1719

 

You can use WinZip or 7-Zip. I haven't tried it before but it should work nonetheless.

 

Also, you can refer the below URLs-
