Hi Mohammed, I would advice that you restrain from using caps lock because a 
lot of people take it as being offensive.

Secondly to answer your question, a simple check you could do is to check your 
backup log after doing your backup. With exchange backup if the backup is 
successful it would tell you so, but if not it will tell you that the backup 
was completed with skipped files. An in-depth securitization of the log file 
will tell you why the backup was not successful.

Usually you can view all log files in the %systemroot%\documents and 
settings\%logged in user%\local settings\Application 
data\Microsoft\WwindowsNT\NTBackup\data folder

Cheers

Skak,

Like someone already said you need to backup your Exchange, afterwards
the log files which are 5MB each will get nuked but will start to grow
again until another backup is performed. If you are unable to backup
your Exchange and want to save space you can enable circular logging,
however if your Exchange blows it will be very unlikely that you will be
able to recover your mailboxes using Microsoft techniques. Instead you
will either have to take your MBDATA folder to a data recovery place, or
do it yourself using a piece of software from Ontrack.
