Was away for a couple of days..

First of all thanks for all the replies. It looks like there is no other 
way than really getting down with all the single files spread over the

Still your answers will help a lot in doing that.

How do I get a list of all access-times of all the files sorted in 
reverse order by date? That would really really help a lot, right!
