Detailed Description

Examples

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

This will recursively search C:\logs for *.log files, archive them into a single tar, compress the resulting tar with gzip and move it to c:\archived_logs.

        PS> dir c:\logs\ -rec -inc *.log | write-tar -output logs.tar | write-gzip -level 9 | move-item c:\archived_logs\
