"can be applied at one time" doesn't match with "one at a time"; I think
"can be applied with a single command" is more likely to be correct (but I
don't use CTM, so who knows!).
"which have been put through gzip" is a strange phrasing; "which have been
compressed using gzip" should be better.

I think this would be "include -c in the command line" or "add -c".

I sort of have the impression that we're moving away from using "switch"
to describe options to utilities (and that "option" would be better), but
don't have a citation.

"something bad happens" is a bit informal; maybe "they are needed for
future disaster recovery" or something similar.
