Subject Database restore speed with IBExpert and Gbak

Hello all,

I came across something really strange as far as restoring a Firebird database. if I use IBExpert(a tool from HK Software) it takes about 3 hours but if I use regular gbak using command line it takes 9 to 10 hours.

I'm using Firebird 1.5. IBExpert vesion 2008.08.08

I think I'm missing something here, any help would be appreciated,

Thank you,
