Exchange 2003 circular logging clarification question

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
We run backup that takes a snapshot of the entire server so the exchange logs keep growing, I need to switch to circular logging so that stops, now when I do the switch do all the transaction logs get written to the store database or can I just archive them? I wonder if any of the information that is still in the logs (well I have 100GB of logs now :-) would get lost if I move them to another location for archiving?

Thank you
