In exchange 2010, how can I view where all of the Exchange logs and reports are being stored?

I need to know how to do this for every kind of log and report that Exchange 2010 saves.

I'm trying to clear up space on my C: drive by making sure that all of these logs are located on the drive that currently stores the Exchange transaction logs.

The Exchange transaction logs are already stored on their own dedicated drive. I know that there are several other kinds of logs and reports that Exchange 2010 saves, and I need to know exactly how to view and change the location of where these logs are being stored.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Exchange will also store mesage tracking logs, see here for how to change them: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997984.aspx

I am not aware of any reports it will create by default.

There are several types of logs that exchange server generates. I am aware of the following (in addition to what you already mentioned):
1.      IIS logs – default on C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\W3SVC1
2.      Exchange Transport logs – default on C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\TransportRoles\Logs
3.      Message Tracking logs – default: C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\TransportRoles\Logs\MessageTracking
4.      If you have Verbose SMTP logging enabled : C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\TransportRoles\Logs\ProtocolLog\SmtpReceive
5.      Other logs:  C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Logging
