Everytime I import the database and export it back, I have noticed around 20% increase in Tablespace size. Is this normal? Or am I doing something wrong?
With this increase in Tablespace size with every Import/export, The datafile soon gets filled up. I am using Oracle 188.8.131.52.5 on windows 2000.
Are you doing a FULL import and export?
FULL will create tablespaces as specified in the export.
Or are you talking about the used space in the tablespace?
I remember when this place was cool.
Thanks hanky. No its user level exp/imp. My database has single user who owns all the database objects. Before importing the exported data, I am droping the user with cascade option.
I am using this export/import method for my backup and restore. I know, exp/imp is not good for backup and restore functionality, but for now, I have to use import/export utility.
The problem is If I do export and import of data 8-9 times without even entering any data, the tablespace gets filled up(I mean the used space keeps getting bigger). With full export/import, I did not face this problem.
