This lists all files that are newer than 2011-08-21.  I don't think that 
is what you want, but that depends on what you do with that list.

Ah, when restoring the Data.fs to the status of 2011-08-21 and copying 
the latest blob backup you use this line to remove all files that are 
more recent than the restored Data.fs?  That sounds correct then.
