Exchange 2013 log files

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?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

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

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