Is there a better/easy way of restoring particular tables from RMAN backup. The DB size is over a TB.

Thanks,
Sve

I don't know a way to recover a specific table from an RMAN backup.  RMAN is sort of an all or nothing recovery tool.

Now from a theoretical exercise, to recover a dropped/truncated table, you might be aboe to use FLASHBACK to recover it.

Short of that, I believe you will need to recover your database to a different server, grab the tables and move them over to the original.

Maybe another Expert knows some trick.

I assume these are old tables that has been around for a while?

If not, you might be able to just use the backed up archived redo files and use log miner to re-create them.

In metalink they're talking about RMAN tablespace point in time recovery. I'm looking into this now.
