I feel sure it's something simple you are doing and you don't realise.
Please list the names of the files you are restoring to ... backing up to
I assume you are using IBConsole but if not let's see the gbak commands for

If IBConsole are you checking the overwrite checkbox?

We are talking about user error here

The gdb got checksum errors - so after doing a backup and restore we
get the same situation as below.

Has anyone EVER got this before ?
