    As you know in the windows system event logfiles all events are stored.

    Can I somehow extract (+delete) all events (in a period of time e.g. the first 8 month of 2014)
    from this logfile (logfiles?) and restore them later if necessary?

    If yes: How?

    One the one hand I want to delete all traces from the past. So system event files wiping is recommended.

    On the other hand I want to be able to review the past to investigate if (and in which frequency and constellation) certain errors already appeared. I would appreciate to be able to load them back again into the log files and review the with the perfect built-in tool "Event viewer" which is much more comfortable than just a text or html file.
