Thanks David ,Mark. The following is the required information :
Oracle version : Oracle 10g. ( 10.1.2.)
On the server , I am storing it on a separate partition . Size of the partition - 20 gb
Size of Archivelogs - It fills up around 1gb per day. I am not sure how big the database is , but it has around 400 tables.
What do you suggest as the backup strategy ? Please advice. How do I take backup of these archive logs ?
