Hi yogeshbabu,

From the TSO command prompt type

Code:
hrecover 'myid.mypds'


Specify your full dataset name.
You can see as when you press enter it throws a message. If it says the statement is in queue then it takes a long time to retrieve the dataset.

Hope this helps...

Hi Sairam,

From the main primary options menu, TYPE 6.

You will get the TSO command prompt. Then try submitting using 'hrecover'. It should work.

Let me know in case of any concerns.

Hi,

More information on HRECOVER...

Create a backup copy of a dataset or library (if installation authorizes)

Quote:

Quote:
HRECOVER dataset-name

Ask about your HRECOVER request.
