exchange filling up hard drive

exchange filling up hard drive

our exchange server on nt4 is constantly running out of disk space.
is there any files i must delete on a regular basis.
the information store is on a different partition

RE: exchange filling up hard drive

you will need to make sure your backups are working and clearing down the transaction logs. If you cannot wait for a backup to go through it may be necessary to remove some of the files manually. Use eseutil (Q182961) to identify which files have been committed....also look at Q240145

If it gets really bad you can enable circular logging. Are the logs on a seperate FAT partition?? you could look at temporarily moving them to the data area if it has loads of room. This will give you time to sort your backups out.

hope this helps
