A simple line in crontab will do the job for you.

0 6 * * * find /yourarchivedir -type f -mtime +10 -exec gzip {} \;

The above will gzip files older than 10 days. You can do whatever you want
with similar commands. No need for extra software. I'm sure others will post
more advanced examples, I just wrote a line from memory.
