Hi everyone

We have PDSMAN, so I can do a RECOVER on the "prime" pds to get back old versions of members ; but after an IEBCOPY or DFDSS dump/restore, they are excluded.
So, is it possible to Copy or Backup/Dump a PDS such that the copy or restore INCLUDES old members, so I can do a RECOVER on those ?

I wonder about Your storage support.

relying on the quirks of PDS is not the smartest way to do do versioning

if versioning is crucial to Your process You should use a more appropriate tool
