Subject Alpha testers for DBak
Author Geoff Worboys
Sometime in the next couple of days I will have the first version of
my DBak program ready for Alpha testing. I was hoping to find a
couple of volunteers to try it out before I make it more generally

DBak is my alternative to gbak. It is an interbase/firebird backup
utility that does not use gbak at all, instead it duplicates the user
data and metadata into a new database. Restoring recreates the full
database. It also offers a Rebuild option that does a full rebuild in
one step.

Something that may make the utility appealing, even if you do like
gbak, is that I will be making DBak source available in component form
(for a fee). This will allow you to embed backup facilities directly
into your applications.

You can read more about it at:

If anyone is interested in trying out this program (still very much
"alpha" and not to be relied on for production use) please email me
I will send you download details as soon as I have it ready.
