I dont think this is possible, and maybe not something that everyone  
would require (possible feature request).

Is it possible to find a file or deleted file within a store of a  
client. I have a situation today where the user on the network knows  
he had a file called keys.doc, however unsure which directory it  
resided in. Chances are as we back up the entire /home partition we do  
have a copy in BB on the BB Store as a deleted file.

How do I go about finding it, without going through every directory  
tree ??

Guess what I am looking for is a find or grep kind of function :)
