Subject Re: [IBO] Using TIBBackup and TIBRestore
Author Svein Erling Tysvaer
Welcome Andrew!

However, this is a support group for Interbase Objects (IBO), whereas I
think TIBBackup/TIBRestore are components belonging to the "competitor"
IBX. There's nothing wrong with using IBO components (starting with TIB_ or
TIBO) for data definition and manipulation and at the same time using IBX
components for automating things like backup and restore, but this group is
a lousy place for getting help with IBX components.

I guess you should try asking your question at some Borland newsgroup, but
I cannot advice you which one (I don't use them myself). For more general
questions regarding Interbase or Firebird (i.e. not particular to component
suite) provides good support.
