dwhyte -> Log Files (21.Aug.2003 12:42:00 AM)

Hi all,
I have a situation where an SBS exchange server has gained thousands of log
files in the MDBDATA folder.
The problem is that a full backup of the Information Store with NTBackup is
not clearing these files, nor is circular logging/stopping and starting the
Inf Store.
I am now running out of disk space every day for the last three days and
need a solution.
The public store cannot be mounted at all now.
There are no errors in the event logs and the Inf Store can be moved/mounted
and dismountes without issue.

Any help?

And when you say full backup of the information store, you in NT Backup checkmark the respective information store(s) on exchange level, not file level ?

disable the circuler logging. Then bounce back the services. It should work.

Cheers !

Thanks guys,
Yes, I am doing a full NTbackup at Information Store level and not file level.
I enabled circular logging as per MS KB article to try to purge the log files. I have disabled circular logging and restarted the services, but the log files are still there.
Could my backup be not working?
It takes 15 minutes on a DDS 4 dat drive to backup my Inf Store.
The priv1.edb is 1.5gb and the log files add up to 18gb.
Does that sound OK.
How can I reinstall NTBackup with the Exchange awareness if that's the problem?
