Hi frenz, I have a doubt regarding RMAN backups.

Iam backing up using RMAN incremental backups. Every sunday...a level 0 backup and level 1 backup on the weekdays. I have configured the retention policy to recovery window of 7 days. Now my question is can I delete (through RMAN) the older level 0 backups as they are no longer needed since I have a latest one.

And one more thing "report obsolete"....what is the criteria used for terming a backup obsolete (I guess its based on retention policy).

PLease help me
