How can I safely remove orphaned exchange 2003 logs?
Posted on 2011-05-03
I have windows 2003 enterprise and exchange 2003 enterprise with 5 information stores.
I used to have one large information stare and broke it into smaller parts.
3 information stores are used for user accounts, and one is used for an offsite journalling service that basically forwards emails to an external site, but it is never needed to be backed up.
The problem is I have accidentally created some information stores in the same folder. I have over 120 gigs of logs files for over the past year.
I have checked the information stores and they are being backed up, and I need to clear out the disk space.
Is it safe to remove all log files older than the "oldest" successful backup? I also believe I need to move the stores to individual folders to keep the logs from being jumbled together.
Thanks for your help
