SharePoint logging change default location of log file
By default SharePoint logging is stored it’s usage logs in " C:\Program files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\LOGS "
but if a server doesn’t have a large C drive then it is easy to change the location to a larger drive. Here is how:
- Log in to Central Administration.
- In the Monitoring section click on Configure usage and health data collection.
- Change the path for the logs and the maximum size and then click OK
The change takes immediate effect, no services need to be restarted.
Note: the specified location must exist on all servers in the farm
