I'm building a VS2010 ASP.NET website and have an error log folder for saving updated error messages.  I do not want users to be able to browse my "ErrorLogs" folder, which is on the top level of the site.  Here's my current web config markup, but it seems to not be working.  What is wrong with my path?

<location path="ErrorLogs">
            <system.webServer>
                  <directoryBrowse enabled="false"/>
            </system.webServer>
      </location>

Where in the web config should this be?  I cannot locate any reference for this code.

Thanks.
