NTBackup Failing

So I nticed NTBackup doesnt work anymore today as I ran out of space due to the Transaction logs filling up the drive.

So I have done a manualy removal of the log files (to a differen folder) yes I made sure the state was clean first...

Anyway it doesnt seem to matter which local drive I pick if I try backing up the store it will start and fail at random amount of bytes but usually no more then 30 megs gets bakced up before recieving the error. heres the NTBackup Logs

Problem is solved. Called microsoft support. apparently there was a problem with the log files. he had me remove every single log file in the mdbdata folder and then restart the information store service. poof everything works. I was quite surprised as I was told "DONT EVER EVER EVER EVER remove ALL of the log files especially the current one!"

but i guess its not a big of a deal as i thought.
