Exchange Server 2000 - thousands of log files in the MBDDATA folder
Posted on 2004-10-25
My exchange server recently fell over (about half an hour ago to be precise), giving me a headache I could have done without on a Monday morning. Luckily, I found the problem to be disk space before I did anything too destructive!
However, the disk space issue is mainly being caused by Exchange, as there are literally THOUSANDS of log files in the MBDDATA folder alongside the data stores.
How can I stop Exchange creating these log files in such an alarming amount, and which ones can I safely delete to free up some space?
