When there is a folder with 30.000-40.000 files in it, how is it possible to find a file in that folder?
It takes days to search a folder like that.

Does anyone know if another provider has some functionality for this?
It cannot just be Acronis that has a non-working software for that.

I know you would like to search for that information on the backup storage and it would be good if Acronis could allow CLI that can be used on the backup storage, but in the meantime, can you not check it from the source server instead?

Customer does not know when the files was created on the source server.
He has used Acronis many years ago and are so disappointed that a feature like this has not been implemented after so many years. So we lost that customer now.

It's probably faster to just restore the entire folder to an alternative location, then pick the file you want from there and copy it to the location you want.
