InterBase gbak shows message that Volume 1 is done


I need to back up my Interbase database and do this with the commandline tool 'gbak'. I have done this many times before, but today I get this message:

Done with volume #1, "new.gbak"
Press return to reopen that file, or type a new
name followed by return to open a different file.

What does it mean?


You ran out of disk space in your active disk or partition. Do not just hit 'Enter' when prompted. If you just press return the result will be a corrupted backup file. Instead free some disk space or pick another target location for volume #2.

I would suggest to free space and start all over, so that your backup file is only one single file.
