Subject Embedded database backup options
Author Diego Barros
Hi all,

I have an application which used an embedded FB database. I was wondering what my best options were to back up the database while the application was running?

Do I need to use gbak and call it from the command line?

Or is a component a better option?

Can I just disconnect my application from the database and just copy the database file and then reconnect to the database once done?

I believe that (I could be wrong) I need to disconnect from the database when using FB as an embedded database, is that correct?

Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
