PowerShell: Copy Log files with Date and Content

Some days ago I made a blog post about Select-String in PowerShell. I created a “script” or a better a command to check log files for a specific text and copy the log file to another place using PowerShell.

Get-ChildItem C:\temp -Filter *.log -Recurse | Select-String "Contoso" |  Copy-Item -Destination C:\temp2

Now I added also a Start date and a End date for the log files you wanna search in.

$Startdate = (get-date -year 2011 -month 3 -day 25)
$Enddate = (get-date -year 2011 -month 3 -day 30)
Get-ChildItem C:\temp -Filter *.log -Recurse | Where-Object {($_.LastWriteTime.Date -ge $Startdate.Date) -and ($_.LastWriteTime.Date -le $Enddate.Date)} | Select-String "Contoso" |  Copy-Item -Destination C:\temp2

Also check out my blog post to clean up files older than a specific date using PowerShell and how to install PowerShell 6 and PowerShell 7. If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments.
