Is there a way to separate the .mdf and .ldf files so that each file has its own folder?

Hi,

A DoD STIG audit was run on our databases. The audit stated that our .mdf and .ldf files should be separated from each other. For example, each .mdf file should have its own folder. Likewise, each .ldf file. Everything must be separated. So I shut down the SQL Server, moved every .mdf file to its own folder, and moved each .ldf to its own folder. Then I attempted to restart the SQL Server -- it did not work! So I started playing around with the DefaultData and DefaultLog Server parameters. I noticed that SQL Server does not have a separate setting for each database (all the .mdf files have to be located in the DefaultData directory and all the .ldf files have to be located in the DefaultLog directory). So my question is, is there a way to separate the .mdf and .ldf files so that each file has its own folder?
