How can I list the files changed in a directory yesterday via the command line?

I would like to list all files with modification dates for the last n days (or even just after Ymd) in a directory. It should work recursively and across all subdirectories.

How can i do this?

Ideal way out:

file.txt    Mar  26 15:15
file2.txt    Mar  27 01:15


Valid output:

find . -type f -mtime -1 -exec ls -l {} \;

will display all files in the last 24 hours with a long list to confirm the modified date.




find . -mtime +1


For more information see

man find




find dir -mtime +1 -print


This will find all files in directories and subdirectories that were changed 1 day ago or earlier.
