Thanks for the additional details. Indeed I just skimmed over your first take. Thank you for time and patience with me.

This is all a lot more than I anticipated. It is all good stuff to learn, but I am on a mission and I have a deadline. I found the files I needed by locating a reference date on letter, then manually searching around that date. All of that took maybe 2 to 3 hours of grinding.

Regrettably building those skills from your content and coaching will have to wait. I will put all your carefully detailed instructiond in with a cluster of utilities I want to explore for consolidating files across many disks, some going back to the late '80's on 3.5's.

Thanks again sir.
