Exchange 2010 backup issue

I have having a serious issue where a Full metal backup of our exchange server is taking over 3-4 days to complete a consistency check before actually starting the backup.

 It appears that the logs are not being truncated from what I have already researched. What would cause this? We are using the Built in backup application with VSS

I have have looked into circular logging to help with this, I understand the issues but would it enable the backups to be done regularly and without this consistency check running for days beforehand?

If I turned on the circular logging, could I remove the older logs from the system since at the minute a up to date backup isn't happening?.

Many Thanks
