How to clean up exchange 2010 logfiles

Hey there, on my exchange 2010 server in the folder
c:\program files\microsoft\exchange server\v14\mailbox\mailbox database 0033263918

There are a bunch of exchange log files (I would guess) taking up a bunch of room.

What is the proper way to clean these out.

I am not using Microsoft Backup.

Thank you

Normally Exchange can rotate the logfiles. Turn on rotate Logfiles...

if the backup solution you use is exchange aware it should clean the logs - this is the best way
 
depends of the backup solution you might need to select an option that will truncate the logs.
Full and Incremental backups will truncate the transaction log files, whereas Differential and Copy will not.

other option could be circular logging - but definitly not recomended
