    Recovery from backup


    I have a cold backup of Datafiles,controlfile and redo log files. Apart from this i don't have any information.

    How can i find out, which version of Oracle's backup was these, so that i can install the same and restore the DB.

    Do you know which OS it was taken from, at least?

    If you are on UNIX, you could do a strings on the system datafile and grep for version. Or if you are on windows, you could open the file in Notepad and search for version.
