As Dick said about a similar question,

Check with your support people who run regular backups. If the member existed in the pds before the last good backup, they should be able to retrieve it for you.

That needs to be answered by a REXX person.

  1. Yes, but if you mean by yourself, then ... possibly.
    If you have HSM active then it will probably take regular if not daily backups depending on the set-up by you Storage Manager(s). To recover a dataset use the HRECOVER command.
    HELP HRECOVER will show you options but just an...
    TSO HRECOVER <dataset> will try to recover from the last HSM backup.
  2. Yes, of course, you can dou most anything in REXX icon_smile.gif
    Issue the command from a REXX EXEC.

Ooops typo... dou->do

If no HSM,...
The Storage Manager(s) will certainly take scheduled pack backups and will be able to locate where your library/data was.
Well 99.99%, there may be a reason for not doing so but I have never heard of it.
SMS is almost certainly installed and controlling the storage management by the rules laid down by the SMs and even if HSM is inactive, there is a wealth of system information available to the SMs.
