Only if the old data on the JES queue is spooled off to a backup of some sort. Last place I worked, everything that didn't go into Mobius, was saved for later retrieval if needed.
Check with your ops people.......

Hi,

I just want to know, is there any command or batch program or utility to recover the deleted jobs from SPOOL. It is just for my information.

Thanks,
Ashok.

Except for FREE=CLOSE print, the SPOOL retains the job data until the last SYSOUT is printed. Then the job actually gets purged.

This means that viewing a job via the STATUS panel may still allow access to reports that have already printed as long as one sysout still remains on SPOOL. Do a "?" on a job in STATUS to see all the sysouts still available. Use the "PRINT" commands to print or save another copy.

Once the job is purged, then your only hope is that the print was offloaded.
