Hi Vema,

To recover the dataset which you deleted, try the following command..

Code:
hrecover your.dataset generation(0)

Theres is no way of increasing space of a dataset once its allocated. But you can compress a dataset. Also you can copy it to a bigger dataset!
Also Hrecover works only if you have a backup of a dataset.
Correct me if I am wrong..

1.If there is no backup for the dataset it may be possible to recover from a volume dump (just dont type in gen(0000))

2.I too got fed up with running out of space in my datasets so created a job that all you have to do is type in the dataset name and using temp d/s's would copy into a larger d/s of the same name (see attachment)

There is no way to increase the space with any TSO command... First way is to compress it by typing Z infront of the PDS name... or creating a new PDS with more space and copying all the members in the new PDS.... Or Philepeo's job can help..

We have PDSFAST Utility which can be used to increae the space allocated to PDS.

I guess theres no way to increase the space using TSO command.

Hi,

We have utilities that can help us in this regard.
For example: EZYEDIT of PDSMAN can increase or
decrease the no of directory blocks using ALTERDIR command.

Raveendra.
