Hi Rob,

I had a prob like this before, mine was due to not enough HDD space
available. When the backup runs it wipes the size of the last back up,
and you'll find it will get started but will stall again when HDD is

Subject: [firebird-support] Help ! Firebird backup stalls


We have been using Firebird with our product for some time. We have one
DB (400mb) that seems to not want to backup, it stalls at about 78mb
each time. I say stalls becuase the backup gets to 78mb and it never
finishes and the CPU stays at 100%. We are doing the exact same process
with a number of other similar datasets (all branches of the same
company) on the same computers, so I don't think its a setup or hardware

thing. These are .fdb files, not .gdbs.

I have run Gfix -mend on the file and it reports nothing. Any ideas?
