Hi,
Within the existing backup procedures (I mean the current documents that are giving details of the backup steps), I can see there're files with the extensions like .rcv, .bat. But I never see the detailed steps which are mentioning the steps to create the .dmp files. where can I find out the steps to generate the .dmp files?

I know, but I do not see such commands within .bat and .rcv files, which are doing the DB backup.

it can come from anywhere
* someone can copy files to your server
* someone can start a batch, create any file and then rename the extension to .dmp
* it can come with a software installation
* al-jazeera installed a virus on your system which creates .dmp files

really from anywhere
> check the file properties, is there an author ? date created ?
any info ???

As stated already, they really can come from anywhere.  We don't know your backup procedure.  Everyone's backups are unique.

In addition to other suggestions, they could be from a scheduled job within the database as well.

Personally, I don't like exports as backups.  You cannot roll them forward.
