    More information needed. What kind of backup and what kind of backup directory are you talking about?

    Please consider that backups may vary, depending on operating system, database, backup tool, ...

    Some readers of your question won't find a .lst file in their backup directory. Me for example.

    That being said:

    Did you bother to search yourself?

    A hint: Start with the manual pages of your backup tool.

    hope this helps

    Hi Murali,

    .lst file gets created on runtime by your backup tool. This file contains the list of files to be backed up during backup run. Also sometimes this gets removed after completion of backup.

    For an instance if you archive log backup is running, you would be able to see the contents of .lst as listed offline redo log files which will be backed up in that archive log backup.

    In case of database backup this will contains list of data files.

    Cheers !!!
