How do we find files modified in last five days unix linux?
To find all files modified within the last 5 days:
find / -mtime -5 -print
The – in front of the 5 modifies the meaning of the time as “less than five days.” The command
find / -mtime +5 -print
displays files modified more than five days ago. Without the + or -, the command would find files with a modification time of five days ago, not less or more.
