Poweshell Script to schedule

A D asked
Last Modified: 2020-02-27
I have a folder named Error Log with thousands of txt files being logged by a third party application. Its difficult to find a specific error from those files and proactively fix related issues timely.

Can you help me with a powershell script which can search specific words from within those files in Error Log folder (e.g. '.' is missing or schema mismatch) and copy only those specific files to other folder named Status Errors?

I can then check Status Errors folder every evening and fix any errors so as to avoid any issues start of next day?
