The restore completed with no errors. Logs show that at the time of the
original error, there were warnings that available disk space was
extremely low. I'm guessing the restore ran out of space and threw a
non-obvious error.

Subject: [firebird-support] Database restore error

We test restoring all our backups. Last night, this happened. We
compared the DDL of our production system with a week of backups, and
didn't find any changes in column definitions. We are starting another
restore with verbose logging. Any ideas as to what could have happened
or what we should be looking for?
