You are responding to a 15 year old thread in an English-only newsgroup.

What was on the damaged disk? The oracle home or data files?

You have backups, don't you? Exports? When I was on 7.x, I made sure and have both (and extracts to flat files when I had room).

If you have no backups you are, as we say, Shit Out of Luck. Any business running software that old ought be be prepared for your situation. You may be able to use an expensive data unloading service as Oracle provides, and there's also jDUL you can google which may be more reasonable. IBM itself may have services to restore as many undamaged files as they can, though I wouldn't know about that.

Some service like Pythian may also be able to help you. Maybe.
