I did not mention backing up the individual mailboxes, I asked if you were
backing up the individual "Stores" or the "Storage Group", there is a big
difference :-)
 
The problem sounds like its the anti-virus software, you should make sure it
does not scan the Exchange DB's or the log files:

* 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
