I have Oracle 8i running on Windows 2000 Server. My OS crashed. After reinstalling the OS (without formatting) I reinstalled Oracle 8i after renaming the earlier Oracle home directory. All my .dbf, .log, .ctl, etc. files are intact. Can I restore these files? (Note: I have installed the new Oracle with the same global database name and SID that it had earlier.)
