Searching for a specific file across multiple pc backups RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any facility in WHS2011 that will allow for a search across multiple pc backups for a specific file?  I work on multiple PC's and sometimes need to find a file that was backed up on one of the machines, but dont know what which specific pc it was on...  I realize, i can search each specific backup, for each specific pc, but that can get tedious, especially if there are different versions across the pc's.  Any mechnism to seach by file name, cross the backup database ?

    Given the paradigm is image backup, not file backup, i am guessing not - but does anyone know if this is possible within whs 2011?

  • No, it's not possible.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
