Hello gpand,

Truly, I saw various things:
1. Your'r allocating a channel on disk for your BK, so It's going to ramain there until you need (It could be many time), and you must allocate a channel only if U donot have define it. 2. In the first command ( database plus archivelog;) Your're backing up yours Archive log so U dont nee to back them again (|backup

      format '/data/backup/full_r280%t.afil'
      (archivelog all delete input);) U can do this in one command
( backup database plus archivelog delete input;) 3.Your backing up your current control file, this is necesary only if u don't have configured the (controlfile autobackup).

I hope this will help. The best you can do ever is 'test', test your script.
