Like someone already said you need to backup your Exchange, afterwards
the log files which are 5MB each will get nuked but will start to grow
again until another backup is performed. If you are unable to backup
your Exchange and want to save space you can enable circular logging,
however if your Exchange blows it will be very unlikely that you will be
able to recover your mailboxes using Microsoft techniques. Instead you
will either have to take your MBDATA folder to a data recovery place, or
do it yourself using a piece of software from Ontrack.
