What, exactly, are you including in this backup? Where are you storing it on the server? How large is the filesystem for the archivelogs? How may archivelogs do you generate in an hour? How large, on average, are your archivelogs? What do you mean by 'Just doing an 'rm' doesn't seem to help.'? Which release of Oracle are you using? How large is your database?

You need to provide much more information than you have before anyone can provide any suggestions.
