Log files filling disk up

We have an Exchange Server 2003 implementation.

It is generating 5MB logfiles every few minutes, and 
within a few weeks is filling the available disk space.

Any advice on hoe these logfiles can be managed would be 
much appreciated.




Thanks
Dave

Are you doing Exchange-aware full online backups?

Yes, Backup Exec 9, Exchange enabled, Database / Flush 
Logs etc. I guess that's the way to clear logfiles etc 
then?

Is there another way? Surely we should be able to flush / 
clear logs at will?

Only a full or incremental online backup can clear logs. How often do
you backup?

Try using NTBACKUP to create an online backup. That should clear the log 
files....

troubles with delimited files
I receive orders via CSV files. Below is one of the troublemakers. If you notice, the sku# is 9185 and the 16 digit following ends in 9185. Great! No matter if I open as CSV, TXT, or cut-n-paste, then opt to delimit into columns, the 16 digit number will always resolve to 9990000000009180 which is a mismatch. Also, with the cell not wide enough, it displays as 9.99E+15.

Comma Delimited (CSV) Files
How can I save an excel file as a comma delimited (CSV) file, BUT still maintain a format that allows for 15-digit credit card numbers? These usually require special cell formatting (ie text or number) that get lost when saved as a CSV file. My understanding is that saving as CSV saves all formats as "General." The result is a file that displays credit card numbers in scientific notation (3.71528E+14)!! This doesn't work for batch uploading to process credit cards.

Online Log Size
I've got a 40G SS 2005 table without indexes that I need to add a clustered index to. I know that if I do a standard index addition, it will write out about 40G to the log and I was hoping to avoid that. If do the ONLINE option for building this clustered index, will it write out significantly less to the log by any chance? Nope - but, you can try changing the recovery model to BULK-LOGGED and seeing if that reduces the amount of data recorded in the transaction log. Remember to change the recovery model back to full after the index has been rebuilt. Note: the transact...
