    Disable access to folder where software places logs

    Hello, i have this little issue. I use a custom made software which writes logs to certain directory. The logs are not needed for the software to work, however neither I or someone else can modify the software, but i would like to prevent it from creating logs. The logs are made in .txt . Oh and software/machine are/must be running with admin privileges (UAC is disabled).
    I tried locking the folder with cacls foldertolock /e /p everyone:n , after doing this i cannot access it via explorer, but the logs keep getting saved in that folder.
    I also tried adding +r attribute to the folder, but it didn't affect it in any way.

    Any other things i could try? I would prefer that this could be made remotely via cmd/registry/whatever.

    Sorry this is hard to understand, can you try to explain it clearly.

    What exactly do you want to do with the logs?

    He wants to prevent them from being created.

    What is the full path to the folder it writes the log file to?
