Introduction

Nbackup is a backup utility included in the Firebird download packages since version 2.0. It offers possibilities not present in gbak – Firebird's pre-existing backup tool – but doesn't replace the latter. Both programmes have their strengths and weaknesses; they will likely coexist for some time to come.
