Subject Re: [firebird-support] Firebird 3.0.1 freezes on one table for some 10-20 minutes during backup after gfix/mend
I checked the system again - we use 3.0.2 indeed.

There is no particular reason why we use -mend. We use it routinely between backup/restore operations to prevent the situation that any corruption errors my intervene in our operations. My understanding is that mend can not and it should not cause any troubles.
