I guess I could create another diskgroup, but I'd have to rob space from one of the existing ones and I presume this would mean a resizing of the grid disks, etc. However, once I did that, I could have DATA, FRA, ARCHIVE and DBFS_DG diskgroups - I could put the Flashback Logs into the FRA, archivelogs into the ARCHIVE and continue to not use DBFS_DG.
Typically, that diskgroup is also the Recovery Area, but that is not necessarily so.
