Subject RE: [firebird-support] File/document managament on Firebird

You could also store the fdb/gdb file(s) on redundant disks, and keep everything safe, not just the
files themselves. A filesystem is a database, albeit a simplistic one. It's all the same, really.

Speaking of which, does anyone know of OS plugins to fake a filesystem where you've got a fdb/gdb
file? Like mapping a drive, except the mapped drive is actually a db server and some sql? Maybe
even modify SaveAs/Open screens to allow neat searching/meta-stuff? Experiences?
