 Just read this again - you say you have backed up the databases - how ?
Have you backed them up as flat files or as databases. The only way you
should be thinking of getting rid of the logs is through a full backup
at Exchange database level. It was good that you wrote to this list
before you did what you were going to do, your next step is to go onto
the MS website and read about backing up and restoring exchange - it is
vital you know what you are doing with this.

Short answer is NO!

The log files only get cleaned up once you backup Exchange. So back it
up if you have not done it in a long time because you never know when
something might tank and you will be up the creek without a paddle
because to forgot to backup Exchange.

Andrew

Hello all,

Just a quick question about offline defrag of and exchange 2000
database.
I've backed up the database and about to start. i dont' have circular
loggin g turned on so there are all these log files in the MDBdata
folder with the PRIV1.edb and PUB1.edb files. After running the defrag
can I delete the log files?

What I've actually done is, I've made a copy of the mdb data folder onto
another drive and I'm gong to defrag the copy of the database not the
one in the priginal mdbdata folder. Can I then delete the log files from
the that folder and  replace the the defraged database into the
directory of the original one?
