I wouldn't suggest moving the log files manually, it could stop the server from 
working.  If i were you i would find another hdd space with some good free 
space (or install a new one) and move the exchange database or move the log 
files one of them.  You can cahnge the log files location from:

open Exchange system manager.
Expand the tree till there is "first storage group"
Right click and choose properties.
From there you can set new path for the transaction log files.  I am not sure 
if it will move the unused one but, have to check it out for yourself and let 
us know :P

To move the database:
Open exchange system manager
Expand the tree till Mailbox store or Public folder store.
Right click and choose properties.
from there you can move the datbases to somewhere else.

Hope this helps :)

Hey Robert,

We do a backup every night, but one of my guys is saying hes had a few problems 
with it - "thanks for letting me know!"

Is there anything i can do in the short term ie Today, to free up some disk 
space without doing offline compression?  Can i move the oldest log files onto 
another server just for today, and then move them back when i do a full backup 

I know this is touching on dangerous ground, but i need to do something!!
