    Oracle 817 on Win. 2000

    When doing hot backup after putting the datafile in backup mode, OCOPY command gives error, Unable to open input file.
    I am copying file from one disk to another disk. Also it displays some junk characters around the file name. File name looks good in V$DATAFILE.

    Directory of C:\ORACLE\CORE

    When you take a hot backup on NT, and you want to make a copy of the datafiles, the normal copy command will not work because the file has been opened by the Oracle Server.

    OCOPY = Open COPY is a program that allows you to copy an open file, so you can take online backups off the datafiles.
