GBAK of external files functionality has changed between v4.x and v5.x
By: Borland Staff
Abstract: Be aware that we have changed the way that backup and restore external files between v4.x and v5.x.
V4 --> V5 migration key note. Be aware that we have
changed the way that backup and restore external files
between v4.x and v5.x.
In InterBase version v4.x when you backup a database
with external file relations, GBAK will import the data into
the backup file. When you restore the database
the once external files are recreated as internal tables.
In InterBase version v5.x, GBAK only backs up the external
file definition and ignores the actual data in the external file.
Thus, when you restore the database there are no records
