restoring a single “lost” document stored in Alfresco

Hi,

our system administrator has strong concerns about introducing Alfresco because currently it is very comfortably for him to identify and restore a single document that a user has "lost" from the windows backup. We have tons of documents, powerpoints, word, pdf etc. And we don´t have the space to keep the files duplicated also on the windows system if we decide to import them all into Alfresco.

Is there in the newer Alfresco Versions 5.0/5.1 any comfortable way to retrieve a single file? Or can I retrieve a file only by restoring the complete backed up data base and searching the internal file name and path in the data base (what implies that I have to know exactly the external file name) and then retrieving this file from the backup?

For our system administrator this seems not very practical compared to restore a file from windows backup.
Are there other risks or security concerns regarding this aspect we had to take into account using Alfresco?

Thanks in advance for reply
