Is there any way to actually look at what was in my iCal calendar, in calendar view, at the point in time of one of my previous backups?


And if not, is there any way to search the iCal backup files to find the ones with certain entries?


For example, I wanted to find all entries starting with Dr C, but the way the calender entries are listed in each "Events" folder they don't appear to be searchable.  And scrolling through them is very cumbersome, especially since the calendars are identified by numbers, not names...


Any help that makes this easier will be much appreciated!


Thanks in advance.
