Hi,

It's a good idea to use the recovery area.
Can you show parameter db_recovery_file_dest

If it's ok then set log_archive_dest='LOCATION=USE_DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST'
 The big advantage is that you can use archive deletion policy with that.

Regards,
Franck.

The docs:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e25513/initparams122.htm#REFRN10085

If LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST is not explicitly defined and all the LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_n parameters have null string values, LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST is set to an operating system-specific default value on instance startup.

Specifying Archive Destinations


>>"which directory is good for that....

Pick one.  There is no hard and fast rule on where they go.

Typically you want them in the same basic folder structure that your other database files are.  You also want to try to get them on different disks so writing to them doesn't interfere with normal database activity.
