I found this message in my alert.log:
ARC0: Beginning to archive log# 3 seq# 115
ARC0: Error 19504 creating archivelog file 'D:\ORA8I\DATABASE\TERRI\LOGS\ARC00115.001'
ARC0: Archiving not possible: error count exceeded

What are your log_archive_ parameters in your initSID.ora file?
Also, Have you tried copying a file (outside of Oracle) to the log archive destination? Try copying an old archivelog to a new name to assure the same size file can be written to the disk.
Here are my init parameters:
log_archive_start = true
log_archive_dest = 'D:\ora8i\Database\terri\logs'
log_archive_duplex_dest = 'D:\Ora8i\Mirroredfiles'
log_archive_min_succeed_dest = 2
Also, I tried your suggestion - I was able to copy another file to the log archive destination with no trouble. Any other ideas?
