> Thank you, Norm. I read about the versions supported and I know I could run some tests with the trial, but I didn't want to risk damaging the production database. Although I could run the backup tests on a copy of the database, I considered important to hear other people experiences (good or bad) with the tool. I feared it could work fine with a copy of the database when only two people are connected but fail or even damage the database with hundreds of connections opened.

I don't know the tool, but my guess is it uses either gbak or the
Firebird Services API behind the scene. So, possibly it's "just" a
convenient and easy-to-use wrapper around already existing pure Firebird
backup technologies.

Just a thought.
