Hello,
My Exchange 2013 server log files are piling up. How do I go about deleting them? Can I just shut down the Exchange services and delete old ones?
Thank you!

Exactly which log files are you talking about?  The database transaction logs?, The W3svc logs?

No, don't just delete them. Are you doing backups?  Backing up should allow them to be truncated automatically.

You temporarily do this:
(Open ECP > Servers > databases > Edit the Database > maintenance > Enable Circular Logging > Save)

our AppAssure software isn't truncating them automatically. They are still a little behind with full Exchange 2013 support!
