logs will get clear ones you do the complete backup of the exchange database.

Exchange automatically removes unnecessary log files by using one of the following methods:
•If circular logging is enabled, Exchange Server removes transaction logs soon after they have been written to the database file.

If circular logging is disabled, Exchange Server removes excess logs after a full or incremental online backup of all the databases in a storage group is performed

To make this change apply, you need to either restart the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service, or mount and dismount the storage group you just modified
