I've pasted some of the results of an RMAN backup that I ran. It says that it's backing up both the Control File and the SPFILE, but it appears that only one file is being created. Is this correct? How does this work? Are both files combined into the C-3843121877-20120619-00 file?

Starting Control File and SPFILE Autobackup at 19-JUN-12
piece handle=C:\ORACLE\PRODUCT\10.2.0\DATABASE\C-3843121877-20120619-00 comment=NONE
Finished Control File and SPFILE Autobackup at 19-JUN-12


Also, regarding the below configuration of RMAN - I can change this directory to whatever I want, correct? In other words, is it just the directory where I am putting the backup?

CONFIGURE SNAPSHOT CONTROLFILE NAME TO 'C:\ORACLE\PRODUCT\10.2.0\DATABASE\SNCFPLDG.ORA'; # default


Thanks so much.
