Using Exchange 2007 SP1, on two servers that replicate the Public Folders.  I discovered that the log files (E010000xxxx.log) for Public Folders are not deleted after running the backup software. The Public Folder database file is small (176mb)  but I have about 2gb of log files.  Can these log files be deleted?  I do not have circular logging on any of the edb database files.

Normally you shouldn't delete logfiles. This should be done by your backupsoftware. If this isn't the case, first check what kind of problem exists there.

If consider deleting the logfiles, it is possible. In this case unmount the public folder database to bring it in a consistent state. Afterwards you can delete the logfiles except the following:
E01.chk, E01, E01.tmp, E01res00001.jrs, E01res00002.jrs, tmp.edb.

Before you finally delete logfiles, move them to another place and first try to mount the public folder database. If everything is ok, you can delete them.

Try to backup using NTBACKUP and see if the log files are deleted automatically

I am using NTBACKUP for both Database1(users email) & Public Folders.   The Database1 log files are deleted after running NTBACKUP but the log files for Public Folders are not.  I do not want to delete the log files but at some point they will use enough disk space.

NTBackup runs nightly as a scheduled job,  but wasn't removing the log files.  After running NTBackup manually, the log files were deleted.  And the scheduled NTBackup job now deletes the log files.  

Thanks
