Datafile restoration without backup is only possible when archivelog 
is enabled during the time of datafile dropped. By using archivelog and redo logs
 we can restore datafile.

SQL> select log_mode from v$database;
  • I have removed the emp.dbf datafile accidently

Oracle@test TEST$  rm emp.dbf
  • When I try to insert a new data in employee table present in emp datafile it shows below error

SQL> insert into emp select * from emp;
insert into emp select * from emp
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01116: error in opening database file 8
ORA-01110: data file 6: '/d02/app/oracle/oradata/testdb/emp.dbf'
ORA-27041: unable to open file
Linux Error: 2: No such file or directory
Additional information: 3
  • To recover the datafile we need to take it offline :

SQL> alter database datafile 6 offline;
  • Create a new datafile with same old dropped datafile name/Path

SQL> alter database create datafile '/d02/app/oracle/oradata/testdb/emp.dbf ';
  • Now recover the datafile

SQL> recover datafile 8;
  • Bring the datafile online :

SQL> alter database datafile 6 online;
  • Now insert the values and check

SQL> insert into emp select * from emp;
100 rows created.
