I though of asking you a question..

what is catalog backup and why you need to have the catalog backup?

probatly answer for this question will answer your question..

You could bring it back to last week only from that catalog

After that you would need to see if you can import any images from disk or tape that you can find for backups that have run since then

Best practice is regular catalog backups (incremental ones are fine) to give you as close a restore opportunity as possible

Hope this helps

Hey Fahim,

Point of recovery - last week (last successful catalog backup)

You cannot restore to current configuration
