I have a question I think I know the answer to but want some clarification. At present I do full backups everynight of my 3 oracle databases the biggest of the 3 is 250gb in size. I know that I should use incremental backps which will speed up my backups and also keep the size of these backups down in size but what I am fearing here is what happens if say:-
1. Full backup taken on say the Friday night then incremantels taken everyday for the next 7 days.
If for some reason a corruption happens to the backups and there is a problem with the 4th days backup like they are deleted by mistake what happens after this does rman compensate I am not sure.
Any one out there can answer this
