Firebird gbak backing up a remote database that has spaces in the path and is on a remote Windows machine

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/09/13

I will likely need a batch file like this again:

set gbakExe=C:\Program Files (x86)\Firebird\Firebird_2_5\bin\gbak.exe
set dbPart=MyDatabase
set dbSource=\Path with spaces\%dbPart%.fdb
set dbUser=sysdba
set dbPassword=masterkey
"%gbakExe%" -verify -transportable -user %dbUser% -password %dbPassword% "%dbSource%" %dbPart%.fbk

You need the quotes around %gbakExe% and %dbSource% to ensure spaces in paths are preserved.
