I have just taken over administration of a network and my first thoughts are the amount of 482 events occurring on the domain controllers.  One of the DC is running Exchange 2007.  Any assistance would be appreciated.  The events occur all day long, and I have no idea if anything changed recently to spawn these events as I just took over last week.  See below

The error above you are relating to is not with your domain controller but with the Exchange server. This is usually due to low disk space. Make sure that all drives which have logs or database (EDB) have enough disk space. Refer to the below link for additional details...

I'm actually seeing this on both my domain controllers only one of them have Exchange installed and both have plenty of space available on them
Is this Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2
Is the latest service pack installed? (SP2 for 2008, SP1 for 2008 R2)?

Whats the brand of the server hardware? Are this local disks/a RAID/a SAN/a NAS?

Also post the output of

vssadmin List Writers
vssadmin List Shadows
vssadmin List ShadowStorage
Sometimes it helps to remove ALL existing shadow copies:

vssadmin Delete Shadows /All
