If you really need help, go to $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/demo/ and look at and play with the 4 case*.rcv files.

Practice and work with it until you can properly backup and restore a database when you lose a datafile. Really test yourself in all scenarios.

You should ideally be able to restore only a single datafile if that's what's missing using RMAN, it's much faster than a full restore if the DB is multi-GB in size.

This is what I did to become proficient in RMAN. I have written my own hot backup scripts in PERL in the past and they were good/ functional, but when RMAN came out, I discovered it is so much better and self-checking.

Also, in 10g, you can auto-compress your backups and RMAN will uncompress them on the fly as needed. Fantastic!!!!
