FRA location was changed multiple times from one disk group to another due to space crunch. 

After housekeeping it was set back to the original disk group but the  V$RECOVERY_FILE_DEST did not show updated values in the SPACE_USED column.

In this case +FRA was used as FRA location, then changed to +DATA, and then changed back to +FRA

From ASM it showed the values of disk usage correctly:

because the file usage from v$flash_recovery_area_usage was already shown correctly.


 FRA location was changed multiple times from +FRA to +DATA
