Downloaded windows version and installed on Windows Server 2003 systems.
When inputting the following parameters to recurse through the
directories if during compression I encounter that the the .gz file
already exists I would like to overwrite by forcing. 

gzip -r -v -1 -f G:\

Currently receive this message:  "gzip" G:\: No such file or directory" 

If I execute gzip -r -v -1 G:\ without the -f I am prompted asking if I
want to overwrite the existing file, I can respond Y and process
completes.  My issue is that I am executing from a scheduled batch
process with no user interaction and need to force the overwrite of the
file if it already exists. 

Any thoughts / help  would be greatly appreciated.
