Sometimes the documentation is not really clear. For example, if I use a recovery window, say 2 weeks, and my archive logs are included in my level 0 backup and I use a DELETE INPUT to remove the archive logs. Why would I need a crosscheck for archive logs? They are included in the backup, and they have been removed once backed up. Additionally, I'm assuming that I would not need a 'DELETE ARCHIVELOG' statement either.

The docs are not very clear on this........
