Exchange 2007 Offsite Backups where the Backup Software Does Not Flush Logs??

Hello All,

A client of mine wants to switch to an Offsite Backup company and I am learning that their backup solution, while capable of backing up Exchange and providing Mailbox level recovery, does not flush the transaction logs as a part of that backup process.   Obviously, circular logging is not an option.  

Any suggestions on how to deal with this?  The client has a contract with this offsite backup company so I'm stuck with them for the next 6 months.   Thanks!

    Just an idea run ntbackups and overwrite them nightly so it will flush the trans. logs

    This would have worked.  Ultimately we found a different piece of software.
