1. Try to use gbak with SYSDBA/masterkey to restore
your _backup_ of isc4.gdb to e.g. isc4-X.gdb
2. Rename the newly installed isc4.gdb to isc4-Y.gdb.
3. Rename the newly restored isc4-X.gdb to isc4.gdb.
If necessary, move it to the correct directory.

You should now be able to use all the old usernames/passwords.
