            //that amount of space, and then create the audit
            Server dbServer = new Server("(local)");
            Audit dbAudit = new Audit(dbServer, "Test Audit");
            dbAudit.DestinationType = AuditDestinationType.File;
            dbAudit.FilePath = "C:\\AuditDirectory";
            dbAudit.MaximumFileSize = 5;
            dbAudit.ReserveDiskSpace = true;
            dbAudit.Create();
        }
    }
