Hi all,
Am using EntLib for logging purpose, as of now it creates a new log file in the same directory whenever the log file size exceeds the specified limit . I want it to be stored in a different directory say "Archivefolder". Is there any way to do it?

The directory for the archive log file is set to the directory of the current file. There is no setting to change that out-of-box. You could implement a custom rolling flat file trace listener that performs the archive in the way that you want. There is already a custom Rolling Flat File on the Enterprise Library V6 Sample Projects page which should get you most of the way there.

Another alternative is to create a process/service/scheduled task that cleans up the logging directory and archives the files on a regular basis.
