Subject RE: [firebird-support] Backup database

Try using D:\TEST\BACKUP\DB.FBK instead of \\PC1\BACKUP\DB.FBK

You definitely can do what you want. In fact the output .fbk file can be on
a different machine. The main restriction is that the db file (.fdb) must
reside on the same machine as firebird server. The gbak process could be
run on a third machine if you wanted.
