    In Eventviewer -> Application and Services -> Microsoft -> Windows -> Backup -> Operational there are various events, In case Event ID 4 or 5 occurs need to send all the contents in details tab to a text file using powershell.

    The basics of the information you are after i think will be covered by

    Get-WinEvent Microsoft-Windows-Backup | where {$ -eq 4 -or $ -eq 5} | select -Property * | Out-File events.txt

    That's the very basics of the command. There are plenty of other parameters that can be set depending on what your deeper requirements are.
