can you re-construct your question please?

its impossible that Search built in feature cannot find your files....

anyway, for a "backup" specific files all files on any folder could be a "backup"
otherwise how could that html/php search knows it is your backup? or rather you
mean a directory NAMED "BACKUP"?

or do you want to search files that have been deleted?

I dont know if this works in Vista, but you tagged Xp and Vista.....

From here, for more info.....

Using the "A word or phrase in the file" search criterion may not work
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ContentIndex" /v "FilterFilesWithUnknownExtensions /t reg_dword /d 0x1 /f
