please check the above mentioned article on how to turn on and off circular logging

open the properties of the storage group
you have the option there to change the location
click on browse and select the location
location can be another folder on the same drive or a different drive
just make sure that you exclude the new folder also from anti-virus scanning
moreover when you move the logs, exchange will dismount the mailbox and public store during the move

these are transaction logs that are created by exchange and exchange needs them to function.
a full online backup backs them up and purges them
you can enable the circular logging feature (storage group properties) if you have disk space issues
you can also change the location of these log files

Were can I change these settings? for the circular logging and also the location of the log files? Do I just change the location to another folder on the larger hard drive or do I need to copy any other files to that new location?

I have my log files going to D:/, however the Exxxxxxx.log files are still being saved on C:/.  Why is that?  And how to I move them or prevent them from taking up all the space on my hard drive.  They are being created every couple of minutes.
