    You don't disable logging.

    Read my latest article (on the site) about the Information Store.

    Then, make sure you backup your server. Performing full backups of the IS will purge your logfiles.

        The log files are very important components of your messaging system.
        It is not advised to be deleted manually.
        Exchange aware backup system automatically deletes these logs after a successfully Normal or Incremental Storage Group backup.
        So, I suggest you to implement a backup plane.

        If you have strong reasons to ignore a backup solution, enable circular logging.

        Even doing so, first you should run a normal backup in order to have old transactional logs deleted. Of course you can delete them manually, but again, it is not advisable

          I didn't dare to suggest circular logging to a person that doesn't perform daily backups...
