I did not copy the files to another location.  But I kept about 2 weeks
of the log files, is there any way to determine what  is committed and
what is not, in other words, if the backup is about 8 gig, how many days
would be committed or how many files?  The limit is 5 meg for each file.

I don't need those files if I run a eseutil that is in a clean state or
do I?  I deleted them so I am unable to get them back but I did restart
the server on Saturday and the database came back up without any
problems.

If you moved the logs to some other computer on the network, you will
need to put them back or else you will have to run eseutil to determine
what logs have been committed, and then move them to another drive, then
run NTBackup making sure it's a normal backup and that should purge the
logs.
You can copy the logs back, but I wouldn't think that you will need
them, but it's a good idea to hold on them for some time.

Hope that helps

Hello;
I have an Exchange 2003 server and have been doing backups of the
Exchange store since I started the server about 2 years ago.  The middle
of December, 2005, my backups failed and I stopped backing up the store
until I purchased a new backup unit.
I noticed that my hard drive was filling up very fast.  I checked my log
files in the MDBDATA directory and the files were not being deleted
because I was not backing up .  I deleted several of the files to free
up about 3 gig of space.
I started backing up shortly after and noticed that since I restarted my
backups, using Microsoft Server 2003 Backup, I noticed that my log files
are not being deleted.  I still have log files that are going back to
December 20, 2005.
Any thoughts?
