Have you got any and of your databases dismounted in your storage group?

Are you scanning your M: drive with a virus scanning software?  That'll
cause your logs to fill up in a hurry.

I use Veritas Backup Exec v8.5 (with exch2k agent) to back up my
Exchange 2000 Server (SP2).  I have a problem in that the log files
don't flush when I perform a full backup.  I contact Veritas who said I
should try a Windows Backup, again the log files don't flush on a full
backup.
I moved the contents of the MDBDATA folder following MS instructions to
give the following.  All moves appear fine as new logs go into the
correct partition.  However they fill the partition every fortnight or
so.

C:(8GB) - System Drive, Exchange installed in C:\Program Files\ExchSrvr
D:(4GB) - AD, DFS Roots
E:(10Gb)        - IS Logs file (*.log that is usually in MDBDATA)
F:(30Gb)        - Information Store Files (priv1.edb etc.etc.)

I don't want to enable Circular Logging. And I've even tried adding a
policy which flushes log files older than 7 days, but doesn't seem to do
anything.  The machine is also a DC.

Any ideas?

Cheers,

Joel Mansford.
