Want to know how to delete Exchange 2010 database. We are having 5 databases, out of that one of database doesn’t have any mailboxes now. If we delete database from EMC. Does it delete .edb and all its log files?  Or do we need to delete log files manually after deleting that database.

Removing the database via the EMC or the Shell will not automatically deleted the .edb file.  You should make note of where the .edb file is stored and manually delete it after you have removed the database via the EMC or the Shell.

Thanks for this valid information, But what about log files about this database , Does it delete automatically or do we need to delete as we delete .edb manually?

The databases share the log files, so there is no need to delete them.  In fact, it would be a bad idea to do so.  The log files will be cleared up at the next backup, as per the usual process.
