Exchange 2010 only supports VSS based backups. Secondly, you need to take full backup in order to purge the log files.

yes , thank you for your guidence on this issue , I ran a Winodws server backup (NTBACKUP) on it and was FULL and had no errors , this environment has been resently converted to exchange 2010 from 2003 , so thei only thing left is that there is a replication partner that is off line and it will not let it delete the logs untill is back on line or removed

if you have a DAG logs won't be flushed before they are succesfully replicated to all nodes in the dag

In order to purge the transaction logs, you need to start the replication between nodes.
