Considering the built-in 'Backup Database' script (backup.bat) that comes with a new instalation of the Oracle Express 11g Edition, after finishing the script execution, what folders/files should be copied to an external media ('XCOPY' Backup) so the database could be fully restored the database after a new install?


  • Windows Server 2003
  • Database is in ARQCHIVELOG
  • Datafiles/Tablespaces are set-up as default (user data is being allocated in USERS Tbs)


I have a guess that the folder [InstallDir]\oraclexe\app\oracle\fast_recovery_area should contain all of what I need, but I'm affraid it isn't enough.
