The windows task scheduler logs the results of each task run in a file named Schedlgu.txt in the windows directory.

This file is automatically rotated when it reaches a certain size. Is there any way to extend this to a larger file size, since I have a server with so many tasks running that I only have around 30 minutes worth of logging available.
