    Incremental backup Doubt!

    Hi,

    In 10g is there any new feature to merge the incremental backups?

    ie :

    Monday - Level 0 (incremental) with tag level_0_mon
    Tuesday - Level 1 (incremental) with tag level_1_tue
    Wednesday - Level 1 (incremental) with tag level_1_wed

    In the above schedule, shall i merge the tuesday level backup with the monday level 0 backup and keep it as fullbackup upto tuesday ?

    I read it in oracle doc but i cant understand it clearly so asking. plz...

    You do not have to merge anything, any level 1 backup after Monday will be sufficient as long as you have level 0 backup secured.
    One, who thinks that the other one who thinks that know and does not know, does not know either!

    the whole point of the question was whether he can and the answer is yes and if you needed to it would save you a while heap of time on restoring!

    Not a big deal, but his question was 'shall I', not 'can I'

    I think the OP is looking for cumulative backups!
