>>Script Language and Platform: VBScript, SQL Server
This VBScript allows you to search files that are a few days old, in a folder for a keyword. It is useful to search files like archived log files in the same folder so that you can look in to only those log files which have the keywords.
'This will search todays and yesterdays files for a particular string. cscript SearchLog.vbs "\\Servername\d$\crondit\apps\robocopy\logs\" "enough" "1" 'This will search today, yesterday, day before yesterday files cscript SearchLog.vbs "C:\Winnt\syslogs\" "Error" "2"
