Dr. D Backup & Restore System
Dr. D SAVES, RESTORES or COPIES the entire or just active portions of a disk. It can also create IPL'able backup tapes so they may be restored in a standalone fashion (including under VM).
Dr. D SAVES, RESTORES or COPIES entire logical disk files. These files may be VSAM, direct access, sequential or indexed sequential, multivolume, multiextent, contain user labels, be split cylinder, or any combination thereof. The restored or copied file does not need to be returned to the same disk location, it need not be the same size, it need not contain the same number of extents, and it need not reside on the same type of disk as the saved file. Moreover, a DA file may be restored or copied as an SD and vice versa. VSAM or ISAM files will be automatically reorganized upon being restored or copied.
Dr. D SAVES, RESTORES or COPIES all VSE libraries. The restored or copied library does not need to be restored to the same disk location, it need not be the same size, nor need it reside on the same disk type as the saved library. Also, a library may be restored in a manner so as to add its contents to an already existing library. All libraries are automatically condensed upon being restored or copied.
