I'm an admin on the box. I've turned off all the folder options "Hide protected operating system files" and turned on "Show hidden files and folders".
I can see this folder in Windows Explorer: C:\Windows\System32\winevt\Logs
but I cannot see it from Event Log Viewer MMC snap-in BizTalk Admin Console. In that tool, and others such as GamutLog-Viewer, when I do "file Open", and paste in the same directory, I get: \ C:\Windows\System32\winevt\Logs - Path does not exist - Check the path and try again.
From Windows Notepad, I can do "File Open", paste same, and I get the directory.
Why is it different from one tool to the other?
Should I just create a C:\EventLogArchive and archive all my logs there?
Here's a couple of screen shots from NotePad and NotePad++ showing how NotePad can navigate to the directory, and NotePad++ cannot:
