Hi Dennis

Backup Exec. (BE) certainly should delete the transaction log files. Don't know 
about NetVault I'm afraid. If not you must have a problem or an incorrect 
setting. The default setting with the BE Exchange agent is to do a full backup 
and flush commiited logs unless you have chaged it?. You are running the 
Exchange agent I presume? Depending on what drivers you may be able  to use NT 
Backup as a test? Does it flush the logs if so?

Hope that helps.

Bye for now.

  Hi List,



  Recently, we changed the backup software on our exchange server. Before, we 
used Backup Exec 9.0, and the newly acquired backup software is Netvault. After 
some time, we noticed an increase in disk space that wasn't there before.

  It turns out that Netvault does not delete the transaction logs after a 
successful full backup of the exchange server.


  To troubleshoot the issue, I enabled the old backup exec backup (that was 
still there) to run a backup and see what happened. Well, unfortunately, backup 
exec does not remove the transaction logs either..

  This sort of gives me the idea that is not really the backup software that is 
causing this problem, but exchange itself.

  Does anyone ever has a similar problem, or knows how to resolve this issue?


  Kind regards,


  Dennis Appelboom
