Oracle Crash and Data Corrupted!
I am the only DBA in my company and a little more than overworked, but on top of everything, Oracle just crashed on me and the data is corrupted as well as the data on my backup! Is there ANY way I can get the information back? Any help would be extremely appreciated.
Couple of questions...
1- Does the database can be started?
2- Is the database in archivelog mode?
3- When you say data is corrupted, what exactly you mean?... do you have an ORA- error?

This sounds like a case of "we don't back up our data, but want help with a restore"
I recommend that the original poster read "Backup and Recovery Quick Start Guide"
Otherwise, how do you do your backups, what errors are you getting in the alert log,
what is the status of your database? As in "select status from v$instance;"

I would honestly contact Soaring Eagle Consulting. They deal with Oracle database corruption a lot and have a way to pull your data so it isn't lost. Our company just had a similar issue and they helped us with all of it. Good luck!
I just contacted the Soaring Eagle guys and they are going to recover my data! Thanks for the recommendation.
