When I try to start the service, it fails and the following appears in the Application log within Event Viewer:

Source:        MSSQL$SQLEXPRESS
Event ID:      17058
Task Category: Server
Level:         Error
Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A
Description:
initerrlog: Could not open error log file ''. Operating system error = 3(The system cannot find the path specified.).

To fix this I had to change the Log on as property of the service from Local Service to Local System
