Cannot search Nonstop history

I am trying to search nonstop for a file that existed yesterday and earlier, but I don't know its location. I do know it is in one of the folders that Nonstop backs up.

I navigated to the Recovery tab and typed part of the filename in the Search box and selected "in entire backup" in the dropdown, but it seems to only find files that exist now, not files in history that have been recently deleted.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

I do not currently use non-stop backup, but I did use it a coupler of years back when assisting another user. I there an option to look at the position as a particular date. In files + folder backup there is that ability.

Thank you Ian.

I tried it a few minutes ago and your suggestion worked!

So did what was trying to do in my original post!

So I don't know what I was doing wrong a that tome but it seems to be working now.

Thank you for your help!
