I'm trying to find files that have dates within a specific time range (like the last 2 months).

How do I go about doing that?


The find command has an -ls argument, which would provide the functionality you desire:

find /path -mtime -60 -ls

Good luck.

  • I noticed that -60 works, but 60 doesn't. Why is that? Since the manual says "-mtime n: File's data was last modified n*24 hours ago." Shouldn't it be 60 (positive)? – Rodrigo Mar 22 at 1:38
