Hello,

If they were on tape and the tape(s) have not been re-used, you can change the gdg definition to hold more generations, then re-catalog the deleted versions. You will need to co-ordinate with the tape management people to be sure everything is in sync. You will also need to ensure that there is no create/delete activity on the gdg while you change it.

If they were on disk and had been backed up and the backup media is still available, the data can be reloaded and cataloged. Again, the gdg definition will need to be changed for more entries.

Hi All,

as of my knowledge one command is there

HRECOVER, by using this command we can get the deleted version of GDG.
