Subject Re: [firebird-support] gbak error
Author Steve Wiser
Can you show us the permissions of the directory that you are trying to write to?  And also of the database file that you are trying to back up?

And is there an existing fbk that you are trying to overwrite or is it a new file?

And what user and group are you using to perform the gbak along with the flags.

Does anything show up in dmesg that would indicate some kind of I/O error or hard disk starting to go bad?
