Hunh. That's odd. The first thing gbak does is read the backup
header that includes the backup version. It complains and stops
if it sees a higher number than it understands. So the operation
you're trying isn't going to work, but it should fail cleanly.
I wonder if FIBPlus is ignoring the error or something like that.
What happens if you use the V1.5 gbak directly?

It shouldn't.

Good luck,
