Hello,

I have started using NLog logging library.(currently logging to txt file)
<target> has a config like:
fileName="${basedir}/logs/logfile.txt"  

I want to log to, say D:\logfile.txt  

How can i do that ?
This seems simple but  i have failed to do it.
Thanks.

string path = "";
DriveInfo[] drives = DriveInfo.GetDrives();
            foreach (DriveInfo driveInfo in drives)
            {
                if (driveInfo.DriveType == DriveType.Fixed)
                {
                    if (driveInfo.Name.ToUpper() == "D")
                        path = "D:\\YourDirectoryName";
                    break;
                }
            }
            if (!Directory.Exists(path ))
            {
                Directory.CreateDirectory(path );
            }
filename = path + "\\yourFilename";
