The transaction logs are being generated 5-8 per second under main database folder. i took a full server back , VSS full backup after making  100 GB available out of TB , which completed successfully but it didnt clear logs.

I have to stop the information store service now other wise its going on. chewing space. i have made another 150 Gb available by moving old logs to a network share.

i been searching  for the solution today , select custom option while taking back up and then select only D drive and select full back then. that would clear logs .. i am thinking of trying that , as the D drive is 850 Gb at the moment so it will take 7-9 hours.

Any help is much appreciated..
