Challenge for the experts, not a critical request:

Is it possible to combine two powershell scripts together that are listed below. I need to combine the eventlogsize script into GetDrivesize and have the output in html as in the GetDriveSize script. What I am trying to do is pull down the hard drive size for each hard drive on each computer and also pull down the security event log maximum size, and then package the output into and html file for veiwing and sharing.

GetDriveSize script:

#requires -version 2.0
#use parameter  drive report to html.ps1 computer1,computer2 or a computer list file
#change file path and name on line 7 below to reflect name and  path of computer list file using.
#script will open web browser with current report when completed.
 
Param (
$computers = (Get-Content  "C:\Scripts\Computers.txt")
)
 
$Title="Hard Drive Report to HTML"
 
#embed a stylesheet in the html header
$head = @"
<mce:style><!--
mce:0
--></mce:style><style _mce_bogus="1"><!--
mce:0
--></style>
<Title>$Title</Title>
<br>
"@  
 
#define an array for html fragments
$fragments=@()
 
#get the drive data
$data=Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_logicaldisk -filter "drivetype=3" -computer $computers
 
#group data by computername
$groups=$Data | Group-Object -Property SystemName
 
#this is the graph character
[string]$g=[char]9608  
 
#create html fragments for each computer
#iterate through each group object
         
ForEach ($computer in $groups) {
     
    $fragments+="<H2>$($computer.Name)</H2>"
     
    #define a collection of drives from the group object
    $Drives=$computer.group
     
    #create an html fragment
    $html=$drives | Select @{Name="Drive";Expression={$_.DeviceID}},
    @{Name="SizeGB";Expression={$_.Size/1GB  -as [int]}},
    @{Name="UsedGB";Expression={"{0:N2}" -f (($_.Size - $_.Freespace)/1GB) }},
    @{Name="FreeGB";Expression={"{0:N2}" -f ($_.FreeSpace/1GB) }},
    @{Name="Usage";Expression={
      $UsedPer= (($_.Size - $_.Freespace)/$_.Size)*100
      $UsedGraph=$g * ($UsedPer/2)
      $FreeGraph=$g* ((100-$UsedPer)/2)
      #I'm using place holders for the < and > characters
      "xopenFont color=Redxclose{0}xopen/FontxclosexopenFont Color=Greenxclose{1}xopen/fontxclose" -f $usedGraph,$FreeGraph
    }} | ConvertTo-Html -Fragment  
     
    #replace the tag place holders. It is a hack but it works.
    $html=$html -replace "xopen","<"
    $html=$html -replace "xclose",">"
     
    #add to fragments
    $Fragments+=$html
     
    #insert a return between each computer
    $fragments+="<br>"
     
} #foreach computer
 
#add a footer
$footer=("<br><I>Report run {0} by {1}\{2}<I>" -f (Get-Date -displayhint date),$env:userdomain,$env:username)
$fragments+=$footer
 
#write the result to a file
ConvertTo-Html -head $head -body $fragments  | Out-File -append c:\scripts\drivereport.htm


GetEventLogsize:

get-eventlog -list -ComputerName DUNtdc00,duntdc01 | where {$_.log -eq 'Security'} | Select Machinename,Log,MaximumKilobytes,MinimumRetentionDays,@{Name="Entries";Expression={$_.Entries.count}},OverflowAction

Simple option is to convert the output of GetEventLogsize code and merge it with the result of GetDriveSize script.. Check this and see if it works for you..
#requires -version 2.0 
#use parameter  drive report to html.ps1 computer1,computer2 or a computer list file 
#change file path and name on line 7 below to reflect name and  path of computer list file using. 
#script will open web browser with current report when completed.
