Online or Offline Backup

Hi all

I'm a little confuse about backup strategy

I'm implement Whole Database Online + redo log backup everyday at 9 pm

I've read all the post about online and offline backup in this forum

Most of them suggest to do an offline backup once a week

For this company, I think we can not adopt this strategy (7x24) because there is a lot of work to do by users in this company. Our business process run for 24 hours everyday

I have 3 question regarding online and offline backup :

1. Is the content will be the same between an offline backup and if I'm using Whole Database Online + redo log backup --> assume we do the backup in the same day and same hour --> Will I lose some directory or file system if I use online backup?

2. Since I'm using Whole Database Online + redo log backup , is the restore procedure is the same as restore from offline backup?

2. What is the different between Whole Database Online + redo log backup and Full Database Online + redo log backup?

Thanks in advance

Regards,

Della
