I got my database up and running, but with the error: "BLOCK CORRUPTION ERRORS" in some data files. What should I do?
Indexes can be easily dropped and re-created. Block corruptions in data is less easy to solve. You might try to export the table, but in most cases, the data in the corrupted blocks is lost. Have a look in OSS NOTE 23345: Consistency check for Oracle and OSS NOTE 36548: Block corruptions.
