I'm presented with a server that has over 100,000 log files.. It seems it's never been backed up using Exchange compliant backups tools... So... I'm wanting to backup full and hope the log files will be purged once committed to the DB... But.. The admin mentioned he's deleted log files manually over time... So, I assume the full backup will complete with warning for the log file sequence doesn't match, correct? SHould I go ahead and run a full backup and then run a log backup after that? I plan to eventually send these jobs offsite but it having 100,000+ log files and a total of 186 GB's doesn't sound like a good idea?!
