Here's a hypothetical problem: there's a folder with multiple sub-folders (which themselves may have sub-folders and so on). A program creates/modifies files in any of these folders say at time t=YYYYMMDDHHMM. Is there are simple command to search for all the files created/modified after time t?

Take a look at how Advanced Query Syntax works.

Try something like modified:>YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss or datemodified:>YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss

Ranges should work like this: datemodified:‎YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss .. ‎YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss

There's also support for various other properties, Boolean operators etc.

(Note that date and time formats may differ according to your locale, system settings and so on)
