Subject Why does gbak not check disk space?
Author Gary Benade
Hi all

Firebird 1.5.1

Gbak was busy doing its usual thing last night and this morning reported
that the backup had completed. No suprise there.
I wanted to start the restore procedure but couldnt find the backup file.
Turns outs the backup drive was getting a bit full, so there wasnt enough
space for the new backup file.

Does gbak seriously not have the capablity to check such a simple thing? Or
am I missing something?
I know its good to always check drive space before you do things, but if it
is a gbak limitation this puts a potential dent in automated procedures.

Any input is appreciated,
