Subject Hiow to corrupt a Firebird database
Author Maya Opperman

I was under the impression that copying a database that is currently in use can cause a corruption because windows xcopy might deny the Firebird server access to that file momentarily. I was looking for an official statement on this for a customer of mine and found this:

but it doesn't include the copying/zipping of a live database. Is the documentation out of date, or is it not an issue any more?


PS. Similarly, in the past, I have also been advise to keep connection strings exactly the same from all client connections, but I can't see anything on that either
