Performing a SAP on Oracle Selective Online Full Backup
You perform a selective online full backup when the database is online. A selective copy subclient includes the data, logs and control file. The advantage of a selective online full backup is that the data and logs use the same storage policy, which means that they reside on the same media and are self-contained for long-term archiving. You can use this in a disaster recovery, because you do not need to locate different media from multiple jobs to recover the database.
