Exchange low on storage and backup

So this exchange server disk almost filled up and incoming mail stopped. So I changed EdgeTransport.exe.config and set "EnableResourceMonitoring" to false. now I need suggestions on freeing up the disk space and backup exchange server.
Please advise.

Make an image of the server using acronis or clonezilla.  put a new larger hard drive into the exchange server and put the image on.  After that use a partition utility to resize the hard drive to a larger size.

It's a VM server tha'ts connected to a NAS. I can't expand the disk at this moment. I need ways to clean up temp and log files. also what's the best method to backup exchange?

luci8, great info. I'm on server 2008and ntbackup don't exist but used windows server backup and backed up the server. there weren't much log files, the database itself is huge. I just need to move to a larger disk array.
Thanks.
Glad I was of assistance and thanks much for the points
