do the backup files contain numbers ?
you'll need the dbid if you want to restore the database

post the names of the backup files
it's possible we can recognise the backup file types and help you build a restore script with it

You need to know what backup software created those files and specifically how.  Most backup software products have several different and varying options when it comes to performing the backup.

I would check with the DBA or System Admin that created them.

Just to add, this is an rman backup . But can you please tell how I can restore it ?

There are really too many factors about RMAN recovery to provide the exact steps you need to perform.

This is just a quick list off the top of my head.  It is not meant to be an inclusive list of what we would need:
What caused the need to recover from backups?
Are you recovering on a new server or the one where the failure took place?
Are you doing a complete or point of failure recovery or a point in time recovery?

It might be as simple as a "recover database" from the RMAN command.


I would start in the online documentation.

Database Backup and Recovery User's Guide
https://docs.oracle.com/en/database/oracle/oracle-database/12.2/bradv/part-diagnosing-responding-failures.html#GUID-ED89DC53-A816-450B-BFF4-A712D2694EEC

If possible, I would work with the DBA that set up the backups.  I would also suggest working directly with Oracle Support if the database is important to operations.

You normally don't take an Oracle backup from one system and restore that into an existing Oracle database on a different system.  An Oracle export can be used that way, but not an Oracle backup.

An Oracle backup is usually used to either create a complete copy of a database on a different server, or to restore the database that was backed up to as it was at the point in time when the backup was taken.

We don't know where or why you want to restore the backup that you have.  If you can answer some of the questions that slightwv asked, that could help us know exactly what you are trying to do.
