Wait patiently for it to recover. This is what is supposed to happen. While waiting, try to track down your latest backup, just in case. I suggest a small investment in a UPS will avoid this problem in the future.

  • can it continue recovery after a restart???? – Sakher Jun 3 '12 at 4:43

    @MSS If you restart the system while a database is in recovery, the recovery process will restart from the beginning again. Preferably, leave it be until recovery completes. – Mark Storey-Smith Jun 3 '12 at 10:47
