I have an Exchange 2003 server and have been doing backups of the Exchange
store since I started the server about 2 years ago.  The middle of
December, 2005, my backups failed and I stopped backing up the store until
I purchased a new backup unit.
I noticed that my hard drive was filling up very fast.  I checked my log
files in the MDBDATA directory and the files were not being deleted
because I was not backing up .  I deleted several of the files to free up
about 3 gig of space.
I started backing up shortly after and noticed that since I restarted my
backups, using Microsoft Server 2003 Backup, I noticed that my log files
are not being deleted.  I still have log files that are going back to
December 20, 2005.
Any thoughts?
