Dear Chris,

Thanks for your e-mail.

Oddly (if I remember this right..)  when I ran the command without 
the -d option on the directory it seemed to work and restored the 
files within the directory (not empty anymore). It is quite difficult 
to restore large directories (I get timeouts all the time). And for 
individual files within a full directory, I find it difficult (and 
some times impossible) to find the object id in a folder where there 
are 1000s of files to get the right one / older version. Any 
suggestions on how I can do a list like:

list file*

And it shows all the files starting with the word "file"
