it depends how you backup
if you run rman with "backup database" it will go to the default location

logging into rman command line:
(change orcl with the sid of your oracle database)
set oracle_sid=orcl
rman target /

Open in new window

you can see the default device config with this:

rman>show default device type;

Open in new window

%F is the default format option for disk (see below for link)

you can change the default device configuration in rman to backup to a different default location
to place the backups in folder 'd:\oracle_backups\orcl'

configure default device type to disk format 'd:\oracle_backups\%F';

Open in new window


if you want other options for the format:
