Thousands of transaction logs
Posted on 2010-09-20
Hello, we are running exchange 2010. The database hasn't been backed up by any exchange aware applications and therefore the transaction logs haven't been purged out. Now we have thousands of transaction logs which is making our first exchange aware backup take forever. I've ready about people withe the same issues and their backups took weeks because of all the transaction logs. My question is, could I move most of my logs to another location and then run my backup? Are there any problems with doing this? I can't have the initial backup take weeks.
