FireBird backup error !!!
When I use the -gbak.exe command to backup my database then the backup is succesfull.
But when I try to open my backup db, the I get this error:
Error while testing connection: ISC ERROR CODE: 335544323
ISC ERROR MESSAGE:
file c:\testbackup.gdb is not a valid database
I have tried to open the database with EMS & Database workbench.

I think you should restore the database first (Now is in a binary transportable format - this is what gbak did)
Usually the backup files are ended with .gbk or .fbk extension so you cann't confuse with database files .
You can restore a backup file with "-c" option
-C(REATE_DATABASE) create database from backup file
