Re: EXPORT vs. Hot Physical Backup

Hi,

Ever tried to export a let's say 50Gb database, let alone import it again??

I'd say the export utility should only be used to recover an accidentally dropped/corrupted table and datafile backup (either hot, or if you have the luxury, cold) is the way for backup & Recovery of entire database.

Which is a better way to back up a database - use EXPORT/IMPORT or physical datafile backups?
