    which part don't you understand?

    The documentation about version files states for example:

    "If, during a log backup, you use a backup medium that refers to a file, the content of the log area is copied to files known as “version files.” One version file is generated for each log segment.

    The names of the generated version files consist of the version file name entered during definition of the backup medium, and a number that the database system assigns in sequence during backup of the log segments."

    So, in other words, if your backupmedium for logbackups is writing to files, then 'version files' will be created. Example of two created version files: <SID>_LOG.001, <SID>_LOG.002

    Hope that clears that issue.
