My 2012 Mac Mini running High Sierra 10.13.3 desktop has started filling with numbered gzip archive files (currently just under 200 of them) containing a single gzip file with what looks like a small text file, which I can't open. Can't get rid of them, if I delete them then they just reappear. Any idea of cause & solution, please ?

Gzip files are most commonly met with on Unix/Linux systems, and MacOs is based on Unix. GZip is a relatively old compression format, first introduced in the early 1990's.

I have no idea where your Gzip files are coming from, but if you want to take a look at the content you can decompress them with a free utility called Stuffit.
