    Planning to turn off archivelog mode to save space constraint on DE.  Turned off snapshot policy and was able to turn off archivelog mode as well.  I do not plan to create any vDB from this vDB.
    Q:  Will I run into any issues in future having archivelog mode turned off?

    Thanks.

    I apologize for taking so long to respond. To answer your question: the trade off for taking the VDBs out of archive log mode is that they cannot be recovered to any point in time.  VDBs would only be recoverable (or rewound) to the point in time of a snapshot.  This can be mitigated to some extent by taking more frequent VDB snapshots, several per day even. This configuration will not work if you require point-in-time recovery of your non-production databases.
