Database Backup Works But The Database is Invalid (V2)

Hint Ref: 020707260005
Hint Date: 26/07/2007

Hint Details:

Backing up the database with a version 7 dbbackup fails and the database is invalid. Updating to V8 and using the V8 dbbackup then connecting with a V2 client solved it.


Obvious Symptoms: The log file had been truncated to its usual 192kb but in the backup that was made it was 480kb!
