 +====== Extract ======
 +To extract from a USB drive the best syntax is
 +<​code>​
 +gunzip -c /​media/​usb_drive1/​file.tar.gz | tar -xvf -
 +</​code>​
 +
 +The -c option extract to standard output which is the console. ​
 +<​code>​
 +-c --stdout --to-stdout
 +Write  output on standard output; keep original files unchanged
 +</​code>​
 +This is piped to tar. So if you keep the current directory where you want the extracted files to be, you can directly unzip from the USB drive
