Subject gbak from a Delphi application
Author vincentlemieux

I need to be able to backup a Firebird database from a remote server to my local computer. AFAIK, it's only possible to do so using gbak. (Let me know if I'm wrong)

From what I've read, most 3rd party tools are using the Services API and it forces the backup process to run on the server then forcing the .fbk file to be created on the server. (Still, let me know if I'm wrong)

I know I could launch a gbak process from Delphi using ShellAPI... but is there other options??? ( a gbak dll for example, that I could load and run directly from my Delphi app )

Thank you!
