Exchange 2010 logs since march 2010
Posted on 2011-10-11
Without really knowing what I was doing at the time I installed a new Exchange 2010 server in March of 2010. (problems with the old 2003 server) We have 40 uesrs and I hadn't really thought about it since. Unfortunately I looked at the box a couple of days back and it would appear that we have 24Gb left out of 500Gb... instantly I knew it was the log files, sure enough they date back to march 2010.
Having done some research into VSS backups I ran one, using the windows backup in Server 2008. Unfortunately I came across the "The consistency check failed for the component etc etc". I have been reading various posts on here and the web but all speak of circular logging and how its a bad idea, and not to delete any files, but I don't really understand where to go from here. Other than I need to flush out the log files to have a happy server again..
Can anyone help out? its a bit beyond me at the moment!
