Greetings. I'm working on an msdos batch file that I can use to quickly backup a host of diagnostic data on a system automatically. I've been having trouble with the Windows XP event logs though, because you can't back up the .evt files when the service is running otherwise they come out corrupt. I found this
vbs script that looks like it would work well in my batch file, but it clears the event logs as well as backs them up. I don't want to clear the event logs, and I'm afraid I don't know beans about vbs. I was hoping somebody might be able to show me how I can edit this script so it won't clear the logs.
Or if somebody has a better idea of how I can backup the event logs, I'm open to that too. I just need to be able to run it on a variety of computers without having to install any software.
Thanks a bunch!
