If you altered the archivelog destination, then RMAN will be aware of where the archivelogs were actually written (even if you subsequently changed the destination back to its original value).

If you are doing backups with RMAN, then it should be sufficient to just run your backups as normal, WITHOUT attempting to move around any of your "displaced" archivelogs. RMAN will find the archvielogs and back them up as usual, even though some are in an unusual location.

If, however, you MOVED archivelogs after they were written, you will have a bit more of a mess on your hands. You will either need to move the archivelogs BACK to where they were written, or un-catalog and re-catalog with the correct locations.
