This is common, and supported.

I'm sorry to hear that your OS and/or backup program is so limited.
Unfortunately, this is not something that Pidgin handles, or should
handle.  The way Pidgin logs are stored, this is trivially handled by
an external program, and that would be our recommendation for this
case.  If you were on a Unix system you could handle this with a cron
job and a five line shell script.  On Windows, I don't know how you
would accomplish the same thing, but I am sure there is a way.
