    RMAN DELETE EXPIRED

    user594143
      Does anybody could explain difference between DELETE OBSOLETE command and DELETE EXPIRED

      The way I uderstand DELETE OBSOLETE would delete physical backupsets and catalog records for them if it beyond retention policy. But what is DELETE EXPIRED does? Does it delete physical backupset files or only catalog records?
