Due to the backup not working for a long time the HD is full. However Exchange is still entact - Thank God. Can I delete the e00*.log files in the C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA directory and immediately run a full backup?

    Accepted Solution

    If you are going to run a full backup, after backup, logs will get truncated.

    If the backup issue is not fixed yet, move old transaction logs to a different drive where you have enough space.

    Dont delete the transaction logs - You may require it in some other critical situation.
