But then I don't understand this, from the OP's question:

This suggests that Firebird ought to recognize and/or cooperate with the VSS service, "or else".

I don't know anything about VSS, but given the choice I'd definitely go for gbak or nbackup. They were designed to do exactly that job. They know what's going on *inside* a Firebird database - something that VSS probably isn't aware of.

PS: Sean, why does you mail program add "Email found in subject" to the subject? ;-)
