How to retrieve a corrupt Firebird/InterBase database

Have you ever had the problem that you suddenly cannot open your Firebird/InterBase database? Firebird won't allow you to back it up, and even gfix cannot solve the problem. Firebird indicates the nature of the problem (e.g. checksum error) and on which database page the problem has occurred, but you can't get at it to take a closer look.

Use IBExpert Database Inside to extract and analyze your database metadata and data, without using the Firebird/InterBase server or any of their tools at all! See just how easy it is, by viewing our online tutorial: Retrieve corrupt databases using IBExpert's Database Inside.
