    Hello everyone,

    I need a vbscript file that compresses multiple files/folders into one zip
    file. ( I need to compress log files, since they take a lot of space).
    I do have some experience with VBScript

    Any help is deeply, deeply appreciated.

    ZipGenius has a command line interface (freeware)

    PowerArchiver has a command line version as well:

    Last freeware version of PowerArchiver:
