Misleading. New databases are created with default settings for
attributes. GBak restores whatever attributes are set: it doesn't
revert to defaults.

BTW, the -use_all_space switch takes arguments: full | reserve
(which I've just realised I used wrongly in an example in another
post, since arguments don't have a preceding hyphen).

It would be clearer to say: if you back up a database that has
asynchronous writes set (i.e. forced writes OFF), it will be restored
with the same setting.
