In Windows 7, is it possible to obtain a list of recently created folders? I recently created a directory for a program that I installed, but I can't remember where I put it, so I'd like to see a list of all folders that have recently been created.
Can't guarantee it's the most efficient way, but you can use Powershell to complete this task. If you know the general area to look it will make it a lot faster. Just replace the Location_to_Search with your path. Like "C:\Program Files".
This code builds a Date variable by getting the current date and subtracting 30 days. Then it goes and gets all the directories/files in the location you specify and recursively searches them. It then pipes the STDOUT to a Where statement that checks if the item is a directory and the creation time was within the last 30 days.
