Subject gbak asking for volume number 2 disk

 What causes gbak to ask for volume 2 number disk?

  I am using Firebird- on Windows 7. The following command line is used for taking the backup.

gbak -t -v -b -user SYSDBA -password masterkey accounts.fdb J:\accounts.fbk

'J:\' is flash drive here.

After copying the fbk from flash drive to my application folder on the hard disk, I tried the following command line to restore the fbk file. After restoring a few tables it is asking
for volume number 2, but it is a single file.

gbak -v -c -p 4096 -user SYSDBA -password masterkey accounts.fbk accounts.fdb

gbak:   1230000 records restored
gbak:   1240000 records restored
Done with volume #1, "accounts.fbk"  Press return to reopen that file, or type a new
        name followed by return to open a different file.  Name:
