[S] Retrieving objects from backup

Hi,
I often copy my project directories to a zip drive. It's easy to copy
back an entire directory, but I've been wondering...if I wanted to
retrieve just a single S-PLUS object from my backup, how would I do
that? It's easy if it's one with a regular DOS filename, but what if it
has a name like _20? Can I just copy _20 back to my hard drive? I'm
assuming not because I may have added and deleted objects since the time
I copied the directory and _20 may be something else now(??). I'm using
S-PLUS ver 4 for WIN95 with the latest service pack installed.

Thanks, KG
