Data drive that contains exchange data stores almost out of space - DPM won't back up - can I use NT backup to flush logs and create space to function while I repair DPM?

You could use NT Backup, but it will probably have the same problems if the drive is almost full. If it doesn't work then you will have to use circular logging to flush the logs, then turn off circular logging and do a backup.

Thank you Simon - I actually used the eseutil with the m & h switches to determine the state of the Exchange Database. The database state was "Clean Shutdown" so I moved the logs to a shared drive and restarted the server - all good. Back-ups working great.
