How to view exchange logs like E00001942E8

I want to view the logs located in \Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\Mailbox Database 0050925327 - they have names such as e00001942e8.  they won't open with notepad or word pad and they won't open with the log viewer in management console.  I also don't find those in the event viewer.  How can I open those?
