Hi Walter,

>C:\Archivos de programa\Firebird\Firebird_2_5\bin\Gbak -c -v -t -rep -p 8192 -user
SYSDBA -password masterkey D:\RestaurarBASES\BDRestaurada\BASE.GBK

This is the answer why database grows:
-FIX_FSS_D ISO8859_1 -FIX_FSS_MISO8859_1

You should apply this option only once, when upgrading from 2.1.

If you apply it every time, you do transliteration every time and
database size will grow.
