* The win2003 backup utility will only backup the whole data store not
individual mail boxes
* We are performing a full back up
* We have file level AV software but it scans the whole C and D drive on
the server so it would be scanning the th exchange DB's and Log files.
Could this cause the problem?

Are you backing up the Storage Group or the individual Stores?
Are you performing a Full backup?
Do you have any file-level anti-virus software on the Exchange server
and is it configured not to scan the Exchange DB's and Log files?

I am running backups on an exchange 2003 - Win Servers 2003 System,
using the Built in Win 2003 backup program which does seem Exchange
aware. However the exchange logs just seem to be accumulating. I thought
they should be cleared out when I run a backup. Any one have an idea why
this is happening
