MS Exchange 2007- Transaction logs issue

Hello everyone

We have been experiencing intermittent occasions where the transaction logs on our Exchange 2007, Service Pack 2 system flood our disk drive. The database is currently only 57 GB, contains 38 users and is on a different drive from the transaction logs. When this occurs, we sometimes get a rate of 80 transaction logs per minute. We initially thought it was an iPhone/iPAD issue, so we removed the device partnerships and disabled the Active-Synch associated with those users. This didn’t solve the problem.

We are currently running EXMON to see if specific users on that database consume an extraordinary amount of CPU while writing extraordinary amounts of data to the log files. Unfortunately, the problem has stopped for the last day, so this has yet to yield any results. We’re also using a method described in the following link to try to determine what is being written to the transaction logs, but are having trouble interpreting useful information. 

Any help or hint  would be greatly appreciated.
