There is not. You will need to open each project and check.

Well, you might be able to narrow it down a little bit. If you look at your media files, is there a 4 year old modification date on any of the files? Are there XMP files with a likely date?
If so, you would only need to look in the .prproj files that have a nearby origination date.

If you use the Media Browser from within Premiere, it could help speed things up because you don't need to open the projects to peek inside them. Just click on the project name in the tree view, and its contents will load in the browser. You can then load a sequence into the Source Monitor without having to import anything into your existing project.
Yep Thats what i thought. It's the hard way or no way.
I thought i remembered a file program that would tell you where that file was referenced based on readable projects.
But i will find it eventually. It is the craziest thing i have ever seen. It would seem someone would be able to create that app.
