non-RAC. Platform is Windows.

data files and archive logs are restored from backup. Please note that backup and restore are user managed and not using RMAN.

I get the SCN number from the lone archive log ARC00080_0668630851.001. Yes, it is definitely later than all the data in data files. Even the above error messages seem to suggest that data in ARC00079_0668630851.001 is not needed for recovery. It is then puzzling why oracle should attempt to access the file.
