  • Exchange Server 2007 Full backup not deleting transaction log ?

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm just curious and confused, how come after full backup of my Exchange Server 2007 SP1 with CCR using HP Data Protector (A06.11) one of my Storage Group transaction log partition still not cleared ?

    While the other partitions can be as low as 0.1 GB after the full backup, but only this one particular stays about 11 GB.

    Any kind of help and pointer to troubleshooting this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Try builting in wbadmin backup / ntbackup if it's 2003.

    Do you see any error/warning logged in application log for the failure
    Thanks & Regards

      Does Exchange 2007 SP1 support Windows Backup -- I thought it only came in with SP3?

          many thanks for the reply guys, I just found out that the problem was that someone else manually copied the log as backup log in this directory ... doh...
          all is good after I deleted the log files.
