Subject RE: [ib-support] Re: database backup
Author Neil Murby
I have a question to the use of the t flag.
What is it for?
I backup on win2k without the t flag and I can restore it on a linux
(RH7.1) both with IB6.5 without error.
However I can't use the t flag to create a backup suitable for
restoring to an win95 / IB5 system.
The db is dialect 1, so i cant see why it should be a problem...
Any ideas?
