Hi

Here's what I want to do.

I have OSX Lion Server and a Synology NAS. For offsite updates, I want to
be able to search all recently modified files, so I can copy and paste them
to an external storage drive, for offsite backup. The entire data requires
several storage drives, so I need a way to only backup recent files.

1. Which version of of the software do I need?

2. What is the best method for doing this?

Thanks. I installed the "Professional" software but I didn't immediately
see how to do this.

I'm not sure that FoxTrot is the most adequate tool for this. It is good for searching text, optionally in certain date ranges, but if you only want to search by date, maybe Spotlight, or File Buddy is more adequate. Or just a backup software, if this is what you want to do?
