Hi everybody, few days ago i have deleted my archive logs by issuing commands through oracle database. And then i have changed the archive log destination to C drive from E drive as the disk utilization of E drive is 99%.
But now when i saw archive logs which are present in C drive or E drive i cannot able to read them as previous logs.
In the archive logs Some sentences are in English about my database id and server name e.t.c. but remaining all are in some unidentified format like symbols,brackets,squares... how should i rectify this problem??

Archived logs are binary files.
Which problem are you exactly trying to solve?

Actually before deleting them the font was perfectly in english without any unidentified format so called brackets commas quotations ....

English sentences(English format) was very less! unable to read them.
I am unable to read them when ever an error occur..
thanks in advance

I think you've got the archive logs confused with some other logs.
Archive logs aren't supposed to be in english. As Michel says they're binary files.
