Hello,

I need to delete the Exchange 2010 Transaction logs. There are thousands of them and I NEED to do that. I read two things:

One, do the eseutil /mk command and find out the last log file that was used and detele the rest.

two, do a shutdown and run eseutil /MH and find out if there was a clean shutdown and delete all the transaction logs. read this:

So, what do you recommend? I don´t have any real backup solution, except that I recently got a new HDD where I can send a copy of the exchange virtual server. Yes, it is not best practices, but the company is really small :)
