A tablespace is made up of one or more dbf file. You do not split a dbf file, you make multiple dbf file that are restricted to a maximum size onto whatever volumns or physical drives you want to. The drives must be available to the database server at ALL times.

You are right, I explained myself badly.

How do you make multiple dbf files?

Thanks in advance
