Mark,

I think you miss understood me.
You enable logs up to 7 days when you use circular logs, that way you
can restore up to 6 days recent logs!
Am I wrong?
Thanks!

With Kind Regards,
Khan

I would strongly suggest no one enable circular logging on their
Exchange server, you run the risk of losing a whole lot of data if
you need to perform a restore.
