    Error when restoring GBAK file


    Hello folks.

    Every time I try to restore a gbak file I get this error message:
    "Expected backup description record". I'm using a FIREBIRD 2.5 server, and I've searched all over the net, and it seems that the file is corrupted.

    All I need to do is to restore the database and restore a couple tables to a .xls file or something.

    Does anyone know anything I can do to fix this?

    Thanks in advance.
