Exchange 2003 Transaction Logs not Flushed with Full Backup after moving to a new drive

I am running windows 2003 server SP2 with Exchange 2003 SP2.  This server is backed up using Symantec Backup Exec 10D.  A couple days ago we moved the transaction logs onto a different drive than the information store.  Since then, the transaction logs are not being flushed after a full backup that is run each evening.   I checked the Backup Exec settings and everything is setup properly...full database backup and logs flushed.  Any help would be appreciated.

* Have you restarted "Symantec Backup Exec 10D" engines / services ??

* Try using NTBACKUP - whether it flushed log files.

* Is it logging events in Event Viewer saying Storage Group Backup is completed successfully. Make sure logging is enabled on "Symantec Backup Exec 10D" to log the events in Event Viewer.

* To flush the log files of particulare Storage Group (SG);

thanks Vishal.  I had remounted the stores after the transaction log move and rebooted the backup server, but I hadn't restarted the info store.  It worked.
