    recover database from backup

    Hi,

    This is just for my information. I can't test it. May be somebody out there has come across this. During system backup, database is still up. If I restore all files to other server, can I still open the database? Do I need to recover?

    Thanks.

    depends how you do your backup, if you just copy database files dierectly the answer will be no as your backup is corrupt

    What do you mean by system backup? Taking a backup of the OS? What is not clear about the concepts in Backup and Recovery Guide? You have a PC, why can't you test this?

    This is just a bad cold backup.
