Is there a way to manually or command line or some other method of forcing Exchange 2003 to truncate/checkpoint LOGs.  I'm trying to reduce the number of log files but I not sure how to do this.  I know that a full backup of exchange would do this but does that require a backup software such as Tivoli from IBM.   The system went down so i had to move my log location to a bigger drive but I don't want that filling up soon.

The Windows 2003 backup utility will flush the logs. Step through the wizard to backup the Information Store and it should do it for you automatically.

If you get a choice on the log settings in the wizard, post back and we will advise accordingly.
