If flashback is NOT on, do I need to have a
db_recovery_file_dest and db_recovery_file_dest_size at all?

I believe this is also the default location for some files like archived redo logs.

The docs only say it is mandatory for RAC:

In this case we have log_archive_dest_n in the parameter file to specify a destination for archived logs.

That was just an example.  It is also the default for others.  Did you check the doc link?

Since the docs say there is no default value, one has to assume it is not mandatory.  Why are you not wanting to set it?

Thanks.  I think it was put there when flashback was ON.  At some point I put flashback OFF.
