If you're talking about transaction logs, then you need to take a full

Exchange-aware backup immediately, and that should delete the logs.

is there any danger in deleting them without the automatic backup.

What if I deleted them manually.

I need to create space on the server to install the backup software and for

the server to perform satisfactorily.

Thanks

You create a risk of a loss of data in the event your Information Store

fails.

A temporary work around to this is to use NTBACKUP since its already

installed on the server. if you can use an external drive that would help

you out but if not then you'll have to backup to a network drive which will

take longer.
