Subject Re: [firebird-support] Empty tables after restore?
Author Bradley Tate

Thanks, but that's not it. I've done the restore on several different
boxes, with stupid names so and they can't possibly be being accessed
and all give the same problem. I can watch (-v) the restore and
thousands of records are going in to tables. They just won't come out
again. gfix -v -full on the original gdb comes back with no complaints -
no comments at all, actually. Not being able to get a working backup is
scary. Anything I haven't tried that springs to mind?
