Possible, yes. Advisable... maybe. If you use new SQL language
features from V2.0 in triggers, procedures, or check clauses,
you won't be able to move backward. Otherwise, from the system
that's running the older version, use that local gbak and specify
the V2.0 database. Restore the backup on the older system.

The two database formats are not compatible. V2.0 can read and
write databases created by earlier versions, but earlier versions
can not handle V2.0 databases.
