Creating CAB Files with Windows PowerShell

So, we had an issue yesterday with a server randomly making CAB files in the C:\Windows\Temp directory. It was making something like 1.4 GB of CAB's every 4-6 hours.

One of our Sr. Engineers (James) figured out this was being done by a program called makecab.exe (a Microsoft program). It ended being a bad log file for some program causing this issue. We cleaned it up and all is well but, it did get me thinking (yes, dangerous): Can I use that program to make highly compressed CAB's so I can store them? It looks like you can!
