Also ask storage management about backups that may exist from daily incrementals. Some shops protect the development environments quite fiercly as development is often seen as the high cost stage of a product or application.
Hi, the files were present a day before and the next day it was not thee. Still many people are testing i am not sure whether any of them deleted it.. If that is the case, the issue should be handled accordingly.. So is it possible to know which user id deleted the file??? The back-ups are not taken and so HRECOVER is not working....
The only way is to test again. But this should not happen every time. So will be very much grateful if any one let me know who deleted that particular data set

As MBabu mentioned in the first reply - you would have to look at the SMF records for that time period.
If you intend to pursue this, you will probably need to work with your storage management people. They are most likely to know if there is already something available to identify what happened to some dataset(s). If there is not something available and your management wants to learn what happened, the storage management people are the best qualified to help.
