Looking for a very efficient way to first backup all events logs (i.e., Application, Security, and System) to a local destination for archival.  Want to ensure each folder at the destination is timestamped, dated and indicates the specific log backed up for ease in reviewing audit logs.

Tried that script before but i didnt clear the logs after archiving them. I will attempt this again and see if it clears all the logs. I believe it only moved and clear the application log and nothing else
