A wierd problem. Our database is working quite happily under Windows, but I can't find the alert log. There is a log in the background_dump_dest location, but that hasn't been updated since mid-July (and there haven't been any trc files written either), and the $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/trace is empty. The system has certainly been restarted since mid_July.

I did a search of the entire drive for *alert* files updated in the previous week, but nothing.

Any ideas as to where to look next?
