it is okay to copy the database but u should stop the ib service before copy. In top of it, backup/ restore may be
better since gargbage collection will be performed thru backup/ restore.
You can write the backup command in the bat file and schedule to run it.

Subject: [ib-support] Backing up Firebird

A real beginner question but why is it not ok to backup a Firebird database
by just making a copy of the database file?

It is okay isn't it if no-one is logged in?

How do you schedule the Firebird backup? Can you do it with IB Console? I'm
using Firebird 0.94 (also, someone tell me why I should upgrade to Firebird
1, which has problems on Windows 98 and doesn't work with IB Console).
