$Days = 3
$TimeFR  = (Get-Date).AddDays(-$Days).ToString("dd-MM-yyyy hh:mm:ss")
$TimeUS  = (Get-Date).AddDays(-$Days).ToString("MM-dd-yyyy hh:mm:ss")
$FormatUS = 'MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss'
$FormatFR = 'dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm:ss'
$LogPath = "C:\TEMP\Log"  
$Log = Get-ChildItem -path $LogPath -recurse -include dly_test.log
$ListError = 'ERR1014','ERR1016','ERR1012','ERR1011','ERR1013'
If ( $value -eq 'computer')
 {
  $Format = $FormatFR
  $ReferenceTime = $ReferenceTimeFR 
 }
 Else  
 {
  $Format = $FormatUS
  $Time = $ReferenceTimeUS
 }
$Errorz = Get-Content -Path $Log |
Where-Object { $_ -match 'ERR1013' -and [datetime]::ParseExact((($_ -split ' ')[0] + " " + ($_ -split ' ')[1]), $Format, $null) -gt $Time }
