OK, Teresita, what is your question? Do you have MLM? Did you put the database in the backup mode? Did you save archives? How about the control files? Did you backup control files? I doubt that this forum is an appropriate place for a backup & recovery course, but it seems that you have a good incentive to learn. First advice is to try to restore database and see whether you can actually recover. If you can, well, you're a pro. If you can't .... get backup and recovery book, one of Rama Velpuri's, if possible. My favorite is V7 book, because it's not too thick, it's very clear and well written and I like the color of copper. The most important thing about backup and recovery is never to allow yourself to run out of coffee.
