VBscript error handling and event-viewer logging

I am using this vbscript to copy files form one local drive to a network drive:

Dim objFSO:Set objFSO=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim objFolder:Set objFolder=objFSO.GetFolder("C:\local_data\")
For Each file In objFolder.Files
  If Right(file.Name,7) = "_15.dat" Then objFSO.CopyFile file.path, "T:\remote_data\"
Next

How can I add "error handling" to the code. If there is an error I would like to write to the event-viewer, and prevent the code from crashing.

Thanks

Something like this would log successful copies...

Const EVENT_SUCCESS = 0
On Error Resume Next
Dim objFSO:Set objFSO=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim objShell:Set objShell = Wscript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
Dim objFolder:Set objFolder=objFSO.GetFolder("C:\local_data\")
For Each file In objFolder.Files
  If Right(file.Name,7) = "_15.dat" Then
    objFSO.CopyFile file.path, "T:\remote_data\"
    If Err.Number=0 Then
       objShell.LogEvent EVENT_SUCCESS, file.path & " copied successuflly."
    Else
       objShell.LogEvent Err.Number, file.path & " failed to copy."
    End If
Next

Sorry, the error logging would be incorrect there...
Use this version instead...

const SUCCESS = 0
const WARNING = 2
On Error Resume Next
Dim objFSO:Set objFSO=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim objShell:Set objShell = Wscript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
Dim objFolder:Set objFolder=objFSO.GetFolder("C:\local_data\")
For Each file In objFolder.Files
  If Right(file.Name,7) = "_15.dat" Then
    objFSO.CopyFile file.path, "T:\remote_data\"
    If Err.Number=0 Then
       objShell.LogEvent SUCCESS, file.path & " copied successuflly."
    Else
       objShell.LogEvent WARNING, file.path & " failed to copy."
    End IF
