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

It restored until a few days ago - the gdb was still over 3G then. It
had been running happily on Win32 and using the Linux 64bit filesystem
version when wierd things started happening with, near as I can tell,
some communications problems reported from an odbc driver. I think these
may somehow be due to a corrupt gdb.

I haven't tried restoring to 2 files. Do you really think it might help?
3G doesn't really strike me as a 'magic number', not like 2G or maybe
ever 4G.
