Yeah I thought about HDD space but I have tried it on a number of
machines, some with over 40GB free. I'm wondering if it has something
to do with garbage collection, but the database is new (just loaded the
data from old xBase database). Will wait a bit longer to see if the
GBak will eventually finish and then I will try a GBak -G
