Q

Is there a better way to restore?

My testing and training environment is constantly being restored from a backup copy. Sometimes the files, 3500+, on the 400 are changed or recompiled during testing. The problem I have is that when I restore I want to have everything from the tape put down to disk regardless of what is currently there. This, however, creates many extra files -- renamed with 00001 and a text 'of old version of .....' - which take up a lot of space and...

time to delete. Is there a way, other than clearing the library, of running a restore without these files being created but still using allow obj dif *yes?


Unfortunately, there isn't a better way. I usually use the DLTLIB command, as it processes somewhat faster.
