       nbackup - Physical backup manager for Firebird


       nbackup -L|-U|-F database common options
       nbackup -B level database [file] common options
       nbackup -R database [file0 [file1...]] common options


       nbackup allows making incremental backups of firebird databases. It also allows database
       files to be locked for copying with OS tools like cp(1)


       -L database
           Locks database for filesystem copy.

       -U database
           Unlocks previously locked database.

       -F database
           Fixup database after filesystem copy.

       -B level database [filename]
           Create incremental backup of level level. Level 0 means full backup. Level N includes
           all the changes since the last backup of level N.

       -R database [file0 [file1...]]
           Restore incremental backup. file0 is the level 0 backup, file1 is the level 1 backup
           and so on.


       -U user
           User name for connecting to the firebird server.

       -P password
           Password for connecting to the firebird server.
