Yep. It can do it. The data transfer process all takes place
within a single tiConcurrency (non-blocking snapshot) transaction
so it gets a reliable view of the database state at the time the
backup starts, whether other users are online or not (you can
even slot it down to minimise its impact to online users).

There are things that gbak does better, but there are also
features in DBak that you cant get from gbak. Read about it
in the online help.
