Exchange on System Partition Database on Different Parition but logs accumulate on system still

I am at a near disaster point right now on my exchange server (2007) with about 100 mailboxes.  My system partition is dwindling in space at just below 5gb and is slowly going down due to log files being stored on this drive.

The logs are accumulating at C:\program files\microsoft\exchange server\mailbox\first storage group

However my database folder is F:\MailboxStore

I thought that keeping the database file on the F:\ drive that I would not need to worry about the log files filling the system drive.  I am frantically trying to configure BackupExec to purge the logs after backup but not having any luck (that may be a whole different problem).  

Anyone have any quick fixes that I could put in place to avoid a meltdown tonight?

Firstly Dismount the Database and move everything apart from the .edb and mount it to free some data.

Once dismounted and move everything from EMC you can change the Path as well.

Then do run the below command
Get-MailboxDatabase "DatabaseName" |FL

take full backup using backup exec.......use GRT option while backing up exchange resouce.....it will help you to restore single mail item also.

If F: Drive is having high capacity of space, then configure your logs to be store on F: Drive.
