Hi All,

Accidentally I have overwritten one of my PDS members. Is there any way we can roll back to it's previous stage?

If you didn't take a backup, contact your site storage administrators to see if they did a backup that can recover the member.

As long as you have not compressed the dataset the member can be recovered.

I imagine the OP would like to know how to recover the member.

the StarTool FDM from serena has the capability of resurrecting dead members

also the CBTTAPE contains some tools to do the same thing

I usually advice against end users installing software without the proper skills
