Dummy me - deleted old log files in the MDBDATA folder
Posted on 2011-09-23
boy diid I goof, now that I have read all the responses to this issue, which sys do not delete them unless they have been unattached.
Well, what I did was to delete older ones that started back in 2006 and up to 2009. There have been many restarts of the Exchange Server. I recently restarted the server Thursday this week. I assume that took care of the correct process to shut down and restart, checking which log/trasaction files it needed.
I intentially left the last couple of years, in the folder (MDBDATA).
my question - Since I did the older files, am I safe? I am not looking to reconstruct the database, with trasanctions that old.
I did shut off Tracking, now that I saw it was feft on.
thx from a dummy
