Is there a way to re-sync what Oracle sees as the "db_recovery_file_dest_size" and what Windows shows as available space?

I have over 200GB of free space on my the D:\ drive of my windows server, yet every month or so Oracle will just shut off user connections and show the error of:

"ORA-00257: archiver error. Connect internal only, until freed."

I can clearly see there is enough disk space for Oracle to keep archiving, however it just stops.

Please help, this has become very frustrating.
