You should be using RMAN to backup and remove those archivelogs before such an event occurs. RMAN uses the log_archive_dest_n parameters configured in the init.ora or spfile, so if you move them you can't tell RMAN what you've done, as far as I know.

You're better off scheduling regular archivelog backups through RMAN and deleting the files afterwards.
