What is the database version?

Update the thread with output:

xinstinfo <SID>

dbm command "medium_gelall"

What medium you used to create database backup?


"We have to take backup on same server different Drive."

The Windows operating system (OS) error code that is displayed in brackets is [5] (corresponds to 'Access is denied.').

What users and groups have permissions to write, create file on this drive?

Regards, Natalia Khlopina
