Exchange Server: reduze the level of logs

    Question

  • Hello, I have Exchange Server 2007 installed and check that it generates many logs and this ends up using much of my hard disk.

    How can I do to reduce the level of logs?

  • Hi,

    For this issue, I recommend you do an Exchange-aware backup to truncate the log files regularly. This type of backup will capture all the Exchange data properly and it will flush the Exchange logs, which are very important for your server recovery.

  • Are these the Exchange logs associated with a mailbox database?

    Have you been able to perform a backup yet?

    If the backup is "Exchange aware", it should delete the old log files once the content is committed to the database itself.

    Could you provide some details on what type of backup (if any) is used?

  • Yes, these the Exchange logs associated with a mailbox database.

    I have not done backup procedures, but all data are on a different hard disk (E:\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox).

    These logs are growing so much, wanted to make them less verbose, so it takes up less space.

    regards
