Enabling Backups of the Oracle Flash Recovery Area

Flash Recovery Area is a specific area in the disk storage that exclusively holds a copy of all backup-related components, such as image copies, redo logs, and control file autobackups. This facilitates faster restores of backup data and minimizes restores from tapes during restore operations.
