Is your backups happening properly ? if yes then it may look after that but purging those after sucessfull backup.

Have u checked your size of catalogs may be its going full ?
If this is so then you have to do below things.

You have to dismount databases, stop the Exchange Information Store Service then delete catalogs from all database copies (active and passive).  After restarting Exchange Information Store Service and remounting the databases all should be fine.

Hi, sorry for delay,

Under Storage group folder you can find that, say F:\SG1\CatalogData-2c3ae.............

you can even search as Catalog and can check where yours located.

Rather than dealing with the symptoms, by enabling circular logging, you need to look at the cause.

The Exchange product team have a blog posting on the most common causes of log growth:
http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2013/04/18/troubleshooting-rapid-growth-in-databases-and-transaction-log-files-in-exchange-server-2007-and-2010.aspx

Go through that, also look at the KB articles at the end.

The most common reason in my experience is often linked to a mobile device, usually Apple and a calendar entry.

Simon.
