Not while your application is running. When your application is not
running, it is then safe to simply take a file system copy.

This is only true for embedded, not Superserver or Classic (while the
service is running, it is not safe to copy).

I do not know whether gbak itself will work with the embedded engine
when your application is not connected, but it would take you all of 2
minutes to find out yourself.
