Is it possible to turn off Exchange database maintenance? I need to see if the database maintenance is conflicting with my backups.

Yes it is.
In the Exchange System Manager, go to the properties of the mailbox store.
On the database tab you will see the Maintenance interval.
Click on the Customize button.
Then unselect the times.

By default it is set to run from 1-5 AM. It is also a good idea to configure it so that it does not interfer with your backup schedule.

However it is not a good idea to leave it turned off.

You can't turn it off. You can change the time when the mainteance occurs.

Go to  Exchange System Manger.

Expand your server. Right Click on the mailbox store. Click customize to change the time which the Maintenance occurs.
You should give it 4 hours.

Cheers,
