Best answer:

Answer by Windowphobe
“Find anything” can’t be done. There are tens of thousands of newsgroups and no one source has every last one of them.

Make sure you have an up-to-date list of the groups available to you, then pick the groups most likely to have the material you want, and then download every header in every group you’ve picked. Keep in mind that retention is not necessarily indefinite, especially with binaries: something that was there six months ago may not be there now.
