Exchange server 2003, has no space on the drive installed

Exchange server 2003, has no space on the drive installed. So, i need to make an offline backup, and be able to reduce the logs file and compact the database

Check for event 1221 in the event log is there any free space in thesatabase?
If not there is little point in an offline defrag.

Doing a FULL backup of the information store with Windows backup will flush any uncommitted log files.

Do you have another drive you can move the mailstore to? http://www.petri.co.il/move_exchange_stores_to_a_different_disk.htm
The best way forward from here is to compress the logs, but not the live log file (so the most recently accessed filed). That can be done with the native compression tool. DO NOT compress the entire drive or directory as it will kill the server performance.
Then do an online backup which will flush the logs.
