Cause
The ENM backup location needs to be changed

Resolution
*Warning: Irreparable database damage can occur. This procedure should only be performed by users familiar with SQL Server Management Studio. Databases should be backed up prior to performing this procedure.*  

1. Stop all ENM services

2. Open SQL Server Management Studio
3. Expand out the PLES_Logging database and then expand Tables.  
4. There should be a table named "dbo.Config". Right-click on the table and select "Edit Top 200 Rows"
5. In that table, there are 2 fields that need to be updated, BackupPath and ReportPath. Since this is being changed after the install, make sure the new file path has been manually created.

6. Restart all ENM services
