To the OP, though, related to your original post...what are you using currently to take your backups? It could be that the software itself maintains a database as to what's written, that you could query via SQL (like Tivoli Storage Manager, for example), and see file names/locations.

And it always has entertained me over the years that end-users can't tell you where the file is, or what it's called...but somehow 'know' they need it restored. The follow-up questions are similarly entertaining..."Well, since you don't know what drive you saved it to, what the file name is...what program did you use to create it?", "I used MICROSOFT...that's all I know", ".......".

I asked someone one time "Since you don't know where it was, or what it was named, then how do you know it's missing??" :)

Definitely this. I guess it's possible some companies still just tar to tape, but if you have a management solution, it most likely has a builtin search process.
