Follow the steps below to change the log file path.. You can put multiple log files in a single drive. but make sure tha they are kept in different folder. the steps as below


To use the Exchange Management Console to change log file locations for an existing database
Start the Exchange Management Console on the server on which the storage group is located.

In the console tree, expand Server Configuration, and then click Mailbox.

In the result pane, click the Mailbox server that contains the storage group for which you want to change the log file location.

In the work pane, click the storage group for which you want to change the log file location.

In the action pane, click Move Storage Group Path. The Move Storage Group Path wizard appears.

On the Introduction page, the Log files path box displays the location where your log files are currently stored. Click Browse to specify a location to which to move these files.

Note:  
You cannot use the Exchange Management Console to change the log file location for remote Mailbox servers.  

Click Move. A warning appears that all databases in the storage group must be temporarily dismounted, which will make them inaccessible to any user. To continue, click Yes.

On the Completion page, confirm whether the log file path was changed successfully. A status of Completed indicates that the wizard completed the task successfully. A status of Failed indicates that the task was not completed. If the task fails, review the summary for an explanation, and then click Back to make any configuration changes. Click Finish to complete the Move Storage Group Path wizard.

This issue could happen if A backup is in progress on the active server or a communication issue.

As you said if the backup is causing the issue , stop the backup job and Resume-StorageGroupCopy.

From where you are taking the backup. configure your backup tool to take the backup from the passive node, not from the active node...

Run the "Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus /fl" and paste the output here.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.
