Subject Backup 1.0 DB w/ 2.5 GBAK?
Author Joe
Is it safe to back up a Firebird 1.0 database with the GBAK from Firebird 2.5? We are migrating our application from 1.0 to 2.5, and it would make the process easier for our users if they could migrate by doing both the back up and restore from FB 2.5, rather than having to make sure that they Backup in 1.0, uninstall 1.0, install 2.5, then restore in 2.5, in that exact order.

We tried it, and it seemed to work, but I just wanted to make sure that it's not going to cause a problem down the road.
