Subject Re: [IBO] IBOAdmin to backup/restore a Firebird database
Author Sergio Zoccante
Hi Rob
The problem is, perhaps, because the database path should be the path in
the PC host, where phisically stays the database, and not the net path.
E.g.: C:\data\sample.fdb and not F:\sample.fdb, if F maps C:\data in the
server HD. And this also if the backup software is in a client PC.
