I was surfing the Internet and programming all day. In afternoon I noticed my hard drive has got red, i.e. has less than 10% free space, although I have not downloaded files. Now is evening outside, and within this time I've got 1.3 GB less space. I have no idea what happened, might be I have a virus.

I want at least find out what files these are. Is it possible to get list of files from last day?

If you select today from the calendar it will fill the search field with datemodified:‎11/‎4/‎2012

Search :)
