I use cobian backup to run regular compressed backups.  If I wanted to retrieve something later, I would have to remember when I archived it.  Knowing this forces me to do full backups regularly when I might prefer to simply archive some of it permenantly.  I'm not looking for an enterprise solution for this as we are talking about personal backups.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Have you consider a progam like acronis true image where you could mount the backup image and then you could search the backup images as needed.

The data is pulled from multiple sources (ftp sites and 3 local PCs).  I'd like to have a single searchable index for all of it.

Then consider using a traditional backup application, which will give you a lot more functionality.  Symantec BackupExec, HP Data Protector, ... many are available.

OK.  I can go with that.  Are there any free options that will give me the indexing I am lookingn for?

I'm not aware of free backup software programs.  Of the business SW packages, most do have 30- or 60-day free evals, though.
