Comment(by Izken):

 Here's how to relocate your logs folder without moving everything in
 Windows 7

 1) Move the folders under
 "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\.purple\logs" to the new location
 2) Delete the, now empty
 "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\.purple\logs" folder
 3) Run the following command, in this example I'm using
 mklink /d "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\.purple\logs"

 In my case I use multiple computers and use Microsoft Mesh\SkyDrive to
 sync my C:\Data folder across all of my computers. With the above steps I
 now have my Pidgin logs on all of my computers.

 Warning: Exit Pigin on other computers, otherwise duplicate files will be
 created or logs maybe overwritten if using Live Mesh or similar technology
 to keep folders in sync.
