Subject Re: [firebird-support] Firebird database size is becoming huge (56Gb)

Thanks for your reply. The problem of backing up using gbak is that it is not possible to run incremental backups, right?

By the way, i'm using nbackup 0-level per month and 1-level everyday, replacing the 1-level everyday by the new one. In this approach, if I run nbackup recover using the 0-level and the 1-level backup should I get the latest version of the database?
