I have set up a database in archivelog mode with backup as COMPRESSED BACKUPSET archivelog all not backed up delete all input format '/d123/backup/arch_%d_%u_%s'; among my rman script commands.

Now /d123/ is filling up. I have tried all sorts of rman> delete obsolete etc without result. Finally, I wonder, are these copied logs no longer part of rman? Is it sufficient to just delete them from the file system? Or is there an RMAN command that I haven't tried.

Thanks in advance for your assistance,
