Definitions for "Recovery window"
a period of time that begins with the current time and extends backward in time to the point of recoverability
Stated window of recovery, the most time an entity can tolerate being without technological operations following a disaster.
A recovery window is a period of time in a retention policy bounded by the current time and the earliest point of recoverability. The point of recoverability is the end time for a hypothetical point-in-time recovery, that is, the point to which you must be able to recover following a media failure. A retention policy states that you must have enough backups and archived redo logs to be able to recover to any point between the current time and the point of recoverability.
