OK so with service manager it is not feasible directly.
Is it possible to compile GBAK code into my app (technically+license,
should I do a DLL and publish the wrapper code?) and have it produce a
file where I need it, zipped ? the embedded server (on Windows) does
not allow access from outside the app.

I saw also that Firebird 2, through NBAK, would allow incremental
backups but I did not find doc for that, is it functional?
