"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.
