I have followed https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-server/application-management/move-event-viewer-log-files but log location is still in default location (after couple of restarts).
Why?

    Hi,
    Could you use the command below to move?
    wevtutil sl security /lfn:"D:\Logs\Security.evtx"
    Also check the log path under group policy.
    Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | Windows Components | Event Log Service

    Under Security configure Log File Path
    Hope this helps and please help to accept as Answer if the response is useful.
    Best Regards,
    Carl
