For Windows 2003 Server Event viewer archive script, FYI! in 2k8 you can set archive option but not in 2k3 or below 2k8 servers
 
strArchiveFolder = "C:BckEvt"
ServerName = "."
Set WS = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
DateString = CurrentDate()
Purge = True
on error resume next
StartTime = Now
Output "———————————"
OutPut "Started at: " & CStr(Now)
Output ""
Set System = GetObject("winmgmts:{(Backup,Security)}" & ServerName & _
"rootCIMV2")
If Err.Number = 0 Then
Set colLogs = System.ExecQuery("select * from Win32_NTEventLogFile",,48)
For Each refLog In colLogs
LogName = ServerName& "_" & LogFileName(refLog.LogFileName) & _
"_" & DateString
If FSO.FileExists(strArchiveFolder & "" & LogName & ".evt") Then _
FSO.DeleteFile(strArchiveFolder & "" & LogName & ".evt")
If Purge Then
RetVal = reflog.ClearEventlog(strArchiveFolder & "" & LogName & ".evt")
Else
