I have a scenario where my log files in exchange folders ( C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA) are continuously increasing in numbers. They are expected to deleted as a result of nightly maintenance of Exchange. Any idea what could have gone wrong & where to check & resolve this?

the exchange is 2003 on windows 2003 std. server edition.

exchange logs are only cleared once a backup of the exchange server has successfully completed.

What backup application are you currently using?

You need to insure that Application Aware backup is selected on your backup or replication job.
