Windows Server Backup -- last 14 days ?

Currently on my Windows Server 2012 R2 Backup
I have to pick the "backupDate", then recover.

How can I see all versions of
C:\program\filename.doc created
in the last 14 days since I don't
know what date this file might
have been deleted ?

Maybe I need to pay for a 3rd
party package like BackupExec/etc
to have this feature ?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You are right, Windows Server Backup (wbadmin) is a very simple VSS tool that allows you to backup and restore information but it has many limitations. One of them is that you can just choose the days where you have backups and after that you are shown the content that you have there. You don't see a complete repository of the information.

Windows server backup saves the information using .vhd files (Virtual Hard Drives) and in order to read them you need to mount them separately, if you want such a function you need a backup product including a catalog, such as Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager or a third party product.

SchnellSolutions is correct.  You want a backup solution that does brick level backups and restores.  BackupExec as you mentioned does have the functionality you need.
