how to move skype log

As I know Skype Log files are stored under C:\Documents and Settings\[Profile Name]\Application Data\Skype\[Skype User]. In Windows Vista and 2008, the log files are stored under C:\Documents and Settings\[Profile Name]\AppData\Roaming\Skype\[Skype User]. 

 

My question is how to move the log to drive D:, because my drive C is protected by DeepFreeze. every time i  restart my computer the log gone.

create a custom desktop shortcut to start Skype that includes the /datapath switch to put your Skype profile data wherever you would like

 

eg. "C:\Program Files\Skype\" /datapath:"D:\folder_x"

 

note that it is important to include the quotation marks in the 'target' of the shortcut
