hi,
one possible cause could be this scenario.
please look into the \exchsrvr\mdbdata directory.if there are many edb*.log files(so you disabled the circular logging) and you don't use an online backup these files
will never be deleted.
so if you use an offline backup(without a special agent for ms echange) you have to enable the circular logging for this server in the exchange administrator.

Further to sven's response, both full and incremental backups will purge the log files once the data they contain is committed to the database. If you perform either of these backup methods, the log files will be deleted during/after the backup operation.
Having circular logging enabled will limit the number of log files that can be created to four. Once those are full at 5120Kb each, the first log file will be overwritten. This means that in the event of a crash, you will be unable to recover any information other than your what is on your backup tapes.
You need to consider what is more important:
1. being able to recover email up to the moment of the crash
or
2. disc space.
