is there a setting where we can check if the logs (from event viewer) is being archived periodically (monthly etc) and if so , where is it saved?

thanks - in
I see only one Security.evtx and it has 24k records for the last 2 hours. but i do not see any other archived security files in that folder.

this seems to be the current and latest one.

where would the older security logs be? where is the setting to see if this is being overwritten or not.
