  1. Stop the "PowerLogic.Database.RptStgDBMaintService.exe" service with Windows Service manager.
  2. Open the registry. In the Registry, change the path in the "ArchiveLocation" registry key under Square D Company\Advanced Reports\Report Database\Archive\ to the new path.
  3. Be sure to include a slash at the end.
