Default trace not working

Someone delete the default trace on a server that was working. I added it back however it does not seem to be working. When I run a select from sys.traces I see two traces with ID of 1 and 2. The ID 1 which I assume is the default trace the path to the file is null. ID 2 has a path. When I run a query to find status of autogrowth it tells me file not found or can not be open. This worked fine until the trace was disabled and dropped. Tried many different things to get it to work but nothing works
