This is a little dirty Windows Powershell script which exports or backups Windows Eventlogs. The script creates a .evt file which can be used with the Windows Eventlog Viewer.

Powershell Header

This is a simple Powershell script which deletes Files older than some days. You can use it to cleanup old logfiles or other things. If you run the script the first time you can add the “-WhatIf” parameter after Remove-Item command.
