    Hi Carlos,

    Brtools also use operating system compress, so you can use os command to uncompress it.

    To confirm whether uncompression works,

    alter system dump logfile '<path and name of the file>;

    and it will come back with an error if the file is corrupted or wrongly decompressed, or with 'statement completed' if there is no errors detected.

    Best regards,
    James

    Check the uncompress_cmd on your init<SID>.sap file.
