Compress and extract one file using Gzipstream

        string fpath = @"e:\hello.exe";

        // Get the stream of the source file.

        using (FileStream inFile = fi.OpenRead())
            // Prevent compressing hidden and
            // already compressed files.
            if ((File.GetAttributes(fi.FullName)
               & FileAttributes.Hidden)

                // Create the compressed file.
                using (FileStream outFile =
                                File.Create(fi.FullName + ".gz"))

                        // Copy the source file into
                        // the compression stream.

                            fi.Name, fi.Length.ToString(), outFile.Length.ToString());

        using (FileStream inFile = fi.OpenRead())

                using (GZipStream Decompress = new GZipStream(inFile, CompressionMode.Decompress))

                    // Copy the decompression stream

                    // into the output file.


                    Console.WriteLine("Decompressed: {0}", fi.Name);
