Protecting Your Data : Recovering a Database : Recovering from a full disk

Recovering from a full disk

The database engine terminates if a disk holding a database file becomes full while the database is running.
To recover from a full disk:
1. Remove any nonessential files from the full disk.
2. Start the database, letting crash recovery automatically perform.
If you cannot make enough room on your disk to allow the database engine to perform crash recovery, you must take further steps. The steps vary, depending on the contents of the full disk, as explained in the following sections.
* After-image area disk
* Control or primary recovery area disk
* Transaction log file disk
